Gofu Namahage Taiko Live Performance in Oga City, Akita

Looking to beat the heat and soak up some culture while you’re at it? Usually only spotted in the Akita region during winter, these terrifying Namahage demons descend upon Oga onsen resort until mid-November to drum up a storm with a taiko performance that’ll send chills down your spine and reverberations to your very core. At the same venue you can also make your own Namahage masks to take home, or chill out by the free foot spa.
