A Japanese polychrome cloisonné enamel vase worked in silver wire with three cranes during the dance of love and gratitude.
Irasagi no Mai, or the white heron dance, is a ritual that was born in the Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto more than 1000 years ago. This old dance ended, until its resurrection in November 1968. The event was celebrated in Asakusa to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Tokyo as the nation’s capital. The parade consists of 3 warriors, a pole bearer, a bird feeder, a sunshade door, 8 white herons, 19 musicians and guardian children. It is performed twice a year in the Buddhist temple of Senso-ji in Asakusa on the second Sunday of April and on 3 November.
