Ainu Traditional Dance 3 !

by Kazu

I posted the traditional Ainu males' dance of sword but it is said that Ainu people did not use the sand iron but used iron nails of wooden boxes drafted and reached on the beach.
 So the Ainu swords were not so strong as the Japanese traditional beautiful swords called the Art of iron.
 But the sheaths of the Ainu swords were so artistic that some people collect such kind of sheaths and swords in Hokkaido.
