This entertainment is composed of three parts, Bojutsu (stick fighting), Iai-jutsu (technique of drawing real swords), and Shishimai, and it was called "Child Sasara Mai"

It is said that this name derives from the fact that the sound of the drum Shishimai beats sounds like "Bapaca, Bapaka".
Bojutsu, Iai-jutsu, and Shishimai together are very visually appealing.
