I had the chance to see how local Ishigaki people celebrate and perform the traditional Angama dance during the Bon festival. Such a special moment. I heard drums slowly moving towards the house. Two characters with masks represented ancestral spirits Ushumai (old man) and Nmi (old woman) and answered questions about afterlife asked by the villagers. Colorful dancers around them.
