The Ainu dance is one of Japan's significant intangible folk cultural assets. It is also registered as the World Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009.
The Ainu people use only a handful number of instruments such as Jew's harp and harps that resemble Japanese harp, which itself signify the Ainu culture is extremely old. The traditional clothes for dancing have unique patterns and their movements are derived from the movements of birds and animals.
The Ainu people consider themselves as part of the nature. They regard things that exist in the world such as animals, plants, water, and even, diseases as kamui, or the gods, and kamui and humans live together by supporting each other. Therefore, when the Ainu people dance, they express their feelings of joy and sorrow to share them with the gods.
