About

Enjoy the Namahage ritual year-round
The show is captivating, the banter between the Namahage and the household head is humorous, and they are both accentuated by the atmosphere of this converted traditional home.
On New Year’s Eve, sakidachi (a man who helps the Namahage as they visit villager’s homes) calls on each house to make sure that the family isn’t mourning the passing of a relative or coping with a serious illness of a family member.
Here, you can experience the real Namahage culture and learn from special study course.
