Shinji nô
Text plays performed as part of Shinto religious ceremonies. Origins of the drama may be found in the za (parish organizations) associated with the Kasuga and Hie shrines. Today there are still many local shrines where old forms of drama are performed at festivals. A full program of plays begins with a Kami-mono (god-drama), in which a deity appears as the shite (protagonist).
