Buyō 舞踊

Yesterday had the honor of watching the Hyōgo prefectural performances of Buyō, which is a traditional Japanese performing art that mixes dance and pantomime. The performances started at 10am and did not end until 7pm. I didn't stay the whole day but the Stark and melodramatic performances I witnessed had incredible sets, performances, and costumes; a real treat.
