"Kanekobara Mushiokuri Odori" Dance is a traditional ritual held to pray for bumper crop harvests. It has been performed in the settlement of Kanekobara for over 200 years. In the ritual, men wearing flower hats and yukata with red cords have drums tied to their waists. The event also features a horse-shaped figure made of straw. The men perform one of Japan's few remaining old style traditions of song and dance as they walk around the rice fields, summoning harmful insects from the crops. In order to send the insects to the edge of the village, they walk around the town and set the straw figures adrift in the river. It is designated as an Intangible Folk Cultural Property of Shimane Prefecture.

近くに行っただけなので、中は見てません。蛍祭りのようでした。雨の中たいへんだったでしょうね。関係者のみなさん大変ご苦労様でした。
