Tamba Sasayama Dekansho Festival

It is the text from here.

The Dekansho-bushi dance was born near Sasayama Castle in the Edo period. The Dekansho-bushi dance has gained nationwide fame as a folk festival. Registered as part of the heritage of Japan, the Dekansho-bushi dance provides you with an opportunity to try the traditional dancing of Japan's o-Bon holiday. Not only Sasayama locals but also visitors from near and far join in, forming numerous rings and dancing to the dekansho-bushi rhythm. Also, fireworks rise to light up the summer night sky.
