The Kosaka Bon Dance is a Bon dance danced to appease the spirits of the ancestors. A big drum is used for music, as is often the case in the Kazuno area. The Dai-no-saka dance is a dance music without songs, while the Jinku dance and the Jongara dance are danced with songs. Drums are played with Japanese flutes. The Dai-no-saka dance is a slow dance with elegant hand movements. The Jongara dance is a little faster with elegant movements of arms back and forth, left and right.
