Iomante Fire Festival

This is a flame-lit story of kamuy, humans, and prayers.
The ekasi (elder) spreads both hands wide, and faces the heavens as he prays for peace and order for all. The fire flickers brightly, as if signalling that this wish has been heard. The 'iomante fire festival' has been passed down since long ago. Its performance brings an intensely solemn, mythical feeling to the air.

The magical sounds of mukkuri, a traditional Ainu instrument, and tonkori, a stringed instrument passed down by the Sakhalin Ainu, fill the hall.
