From the Wakayamashachu “tsuke”:
The mythical lion-like creature “shishi” came in the 7th century through China
“Shishi” was strongly tied to religion at that time and scared about evil spirits and brough fortune and health onto the people.
The Ise shrine is said to be the beginning of shishimai as religious ritual.
During the Edo Period (1603-1868) what was strictly a religious ritual, slowly separated into entertainment vs ritual
The original intent was that the shishi would scare away demons for the whole year allowing for people to be healthy. Hence the performance was only done during New Years.
Wakayama Shachu was originally a religion-based performance troupe but transformed itself (especially after World War II) towards entertainment, and was hired to perform for festivities and New Years.
