'Yasugibushi' or 'Yasukibushi' is a well-known folk song in Yasugi region, Shimane Prefecture.

The history of Yasugibushi is unexpectedly short, which was completed by Ms. Watanabe Oito and her father based on a traditional folk song in Izumo district, a part of present Shimane Prefecture. In imitation of a comical gesture to catch loaches with a bamboo basket, the so-called 'dojo-sukui' loach-scooping dance accompanied by Yasukibushi song was enjoying a boom in Tokyo after Osaka early in the 20th century. This unique dance was performed at many small theaters in Asakusa, Tokyo, which is very helpful to be known throughout the country. Most Japanese know Yasukibushi even though they don't know the place name Yasugi in Shimane Prefecture. The dojo-sukui dancer with a bamboo creel on his side and bamboo basket in his hands, as shown in the picture, is funny enough to be prevailing in the country as a banquet entertainment performed by an amateur.
