Shishi-mai means "dance of the lion", a traditional Japanese folk art. The dancer dances with a lion mask on his head. This display takes place during parties, for example on new year's eve. The shishi-mai is passed down from ancient times as it brings good luck, sending away the evil spirits and demons of our lives.
