The theme is “Mai: Dance”. The history of dance in Japan goes back to the mythological age. Since then, numerous numbers of dances have been created. Through them, people can learn various things such as history, language, and culture. The Shinto music and dance, traditional folk art, bon festival dance, folk song, noh (traditional masked dance-drama), and other Japanese dances have been conveyed to this day after
being refined by adding new techniques in each age. This time, two short films were produced based on Mai (dance).
