The Itarashiki Shishimai not only dances, but also walks around Itarashiki district.
This is “Michi Junee of Shishi”.

It’s very hot inside the Shishi and it’s also very heavy. Usually, when people perform this particular role they often take turns during Michi Junee.

The kids get very excited and tease the Shishi though, they run away when Shishi comes close to them.

Please visit Itarashiki during Kyu-Bon (festival for the dead on the old Japanese calendar).
