About Asakura-Lion dance
About 100 years ago, when Asakura-Kasuga shrine in Asakura, Miki-town has built, Asakura-Lion dance was revived on the basis of Botan-kuzushi( a kind of rough performance) in Iwanami area of Higashi-Ueda, Takamatsu. For that a reason, Asakura-Lion dance which is sycronized 3 Lions; a parent lion, a child lion and a grandchild lion, differ from other extant Botan-kuzushi in Miki-town.
The size of Asakura-Lion is different for each lion, large, medium and small. Therefore, danced lion is changed by growth of performer.
The performer has been learning Lion-dance from the childhood, so Lion-dance is performed by a large family with connecting generations.
