>Iwami Kagura - Traditional Play in Iwami region

An elderly couple lamented. Susanowo asked them why. They used to have eight daughters, but giant snakes appeared every year, and the snakes had abducted 7 daughters in 7 years. It was the youngest daughter's turn that year. Susanowo promised them to exterminate the giant snakes. He told the elderly couple to prepare strong sake.
