The Eisa is a Buddhist incantation aiming to pay respect to the ancestors and spirits. The tradition is located in Okinawa, Japan, and lasts from June to September. Each of these folk dances is unique in choreography and outfit and has an electrifying and exciting effect on its audience. Generally, it is young men and women who perform these acts, and over time they have moved away from the traditions. Today, these performances are considered an essential part of Okinawan culture.
