Okada Hachiman Shrine New Year Festival will be held at Izu Oshima. At this festival, “Tenfuru-mai Dance” and “Festival Dedication Dance” are performed and these are designated as an Intangible Cultural Property of Tokyo. “Tenfuru-mai” reenacts the legend that Minamoto no Tametomo, a 12th century warrior who was exiled to Oshima, cut through lava using a lever and built the shrine. “Festival Dedication Dance” is a dance incorporating the choreography of old-style sumo, Kagura, Kabuki, Noh and Kyogen.
