"Shiho Tachi Mai": The five gods for "tsuchi (earth)," "ki (tree)," "hi (fire)," "kin (gold)," and "mizu (water)" gather and declare their own roles. This performance is dedicated at the Autumn Rei-tai-sai festival held at the local Yasura Shrine.
"Ta-no-kami Mai": Two men wearing hyottoko (droll fellow) masks perform a comic dance together with the dialogue of two gods. Since they are wearing masks, their words are a little difficult to distinguish, but the dance is quite comical.
