Kagura is performed during Shinto rituals in Japan. This practice has been recorded in the Kojiki, a Japanese chronicle dating back to 712 A.D. Common folk used to pray to the gods for a plentiful harvest and good fortune through dance. This practice is still quite common today. Kagura is performed all over Japan, but choreography may vary by region. The masks worn during the performance are made by the dance troupe using lightweight and breathable materials. A way to identify the characters in the performance is by looking at the mouth of the mask.
