Nafune Gojinjo Drum

The Gojinjo Drum Performance is a traditional folk entertainment in the Nafune area. It is said that the drummers wearing ghost masks and seaweed hair fought off the armies of Uesugi Kenshin who tried to attack the area in 1577. Nowadays this is performed during festivals and it is considered as one of the Prefectural designated intangible folk cultural assets.
