“Nue” is a specter which has a monkey’s head, a tiger’s body, and a snake’s tail, and it appears from black smoke with the spooky voice “hyou hyou”. The “Nue Barai Festival” is based on an old story of Genzanmi Yorimasa. It has reached the 53rd time this time and has a history of more than half a century.
