Drummers at Mengake Kamakura - Mengake or Masked Parade at Goryo Jinja shrine. At this festival held in September a group of ten people take part in this annual ritual: 8 men and 2 women. Wearing comical or grotesque masks that signify different demons, legends and dieties leave the shrine and parade through the nearby streets accompanied by portable shrine and festival music.
