The three songs at the end of this video of an Ainu women's group in Hokkaido sound very much like Hebridean waulking songs, and the movements match. Anybody here know enough Japanese to understand what's going on?

The songs start about 12 minutes in. It's very badly filmed.

Regretfully, I don't read or speak Japanese, but here's the description as translated by google:

18th Takeshiro Festival
Ankorachi Menoko Utara ("I want to see the truth our" in the Ainu language)

Introduction and performance of ① folk instruments Tonkori-mukkuri
② Upopo (sitting song)
· Hetonupu (song of greeting)
· Chupu River cam Iran (song that expresses how the god of the mountain has come down)
· Kanerenren (song of how the sunset of the sea is shining sparkling)
