Outside Taisho 1910s Nobukuni Enami
Children observe a traveling monkey trainer and his highly trained Japanese macaque monkey. The art of sarumawashi (猿回し) evolved over a thousand years and was originally a religious ritual designed to protect the horses of samurai. It eventually became a very popular form of entertainment. Featuring acrobatic stunts and comedic skits, the art survived its near death in the 1970s and is still performed today.
