The boy was taking in the play on the stage

Shot at Himonya Hachimangu, a Shinto shrine in HImonya, Tokyo.

Walking to the main hall of the Shinto shrine, I found a stage in a corner of the precinct. The stage was lighted. And it was the first time to see the stage being used. A folk performing art was played on it.

I didn't know what kind of play was performed. There were two masked men at the center of the stage. Looking at the stage wing, some people wearing Japanese style clothes were playing a musical instrument. Seemingly, the actors were talking about a fishing pole. Perhaps, it was a fabular story about an honest person.

Anyway, I was surprised that this kind of play was performed at the festival. And many audiences watched the stage in the darkness. The boy in this photo was one of them. He approached the stage and was taking in the performance so much.
