The Kabuki Lion Dance usually features a father/son duo as two powerful lions who explore the challenging father/son relationship.

The Triple Lion Dance is extraordinary not only because it stars the legendary Kanzaburo, but also his talented sons Kantaro and Shichinosuke who shine as the younger lions, showcasing three of JapanĀ¹s most revered mythical beasts. Look for unusual hand-held shishi masks which evolve into majestic full mane costumes.

The Lion Dance enactment is one of the most prestigious and sought-after roles for Kabuki dancers.
