Kobe Meiji 1900s Kozaburo Tamamura
Several men perform shishi-mai (lion dance) in the courtyard of a shrine during New Year celebrations. The performers would also dance in front of the homes of the parishioners as a charm against evil spirits and disease, and to pray for good fortune.

This image is part of The New Year in Japan, a book published by Kobe-based photographer Kozaburo Tamamura in 1906 (Meiji 39).
