The shishimai dance of Kinomoto is performed at the Autumn Annual Festival of Kinomoto Hachimangu Shrine in the Kinomoto area, Wakayama City.
There are two types of dance, one performed on the ground and the other on the danjiri or float, but both are known for their stirring quality. In particular, the dance on the danjiri is what is called hashigo jishi or lion dance on a ladder and one cannot take his/her eyes from the dynamic and vehement movements over the green bamboo.
