Oga Shinzan Folklore Museum

History Culture Experience

Meet, see, and experience Namahage! Located beside the Namahage Museum, the Oga Shinzan Folklore Museum is based in a country house built in the traditional magariya (‘bent house’) style typical of the Oga region. There you can experience the Namahage ritual, which traditionally only local people have been able to witness. This folk custom originally took place only on New Year’s Eve, but now regular educational performances give visitors from far and wide the chance to get to know this ancient tradition of the Shinzan region that has been so carefully preserved across the generations.
