Gagaku Dance Stage - Yasaka Jinja Shrine 八坂神社 舞殿

The stage of gagaku at Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto. The hall is slightly larger than the usual gagaku stage, and is also used for other music and dance performances.

This shrine is world-famous for the annual Gion Festival and is also called Gion-san.

Impressive and unusual are the many lanterns hung under the roof outside the stage, creating a unique atmosphere.

A total of about 292 lanterns are hung in the three rows of lanterns. There are independent hanging tools on both sides, and the hanging tools are separated in the middle on the long side where the stairs are located.
By adjusting the height of the rows, you can create a different atmosphere and ensure the visibility of the audience.

A stage for my Gagaku Project.
