Kamezaki Shiohi Matsuri / Sam Ryan

2013.05.20 | カテゴリー : 新着情報 | 投稿者名 :

Legend has it that the first emperor of Japan landed at Shiohi beach on the Chita peninsular,
creating a legend that gave birth to the matsuri at Kamisaki shrine designated as an Important
Intangible Folk Cultural Asset in March 2006.

 

 

 

From 1959 to 1993 the festival was not performed due to the construction of typhoon barriers,
however since then the festival has returned in its entire splendour, vigorously performed
by all the serious and seriously intoxicated townsfolk.
As part of the purification rituals on the first day, along with the performers and priests,
were these young mikosan shy of their role, yet curious at the same time.
It was the first time for me to attend the Kamezaki Shiohi Matsuri, but I will be sure to go
again next year. The weather was perfect and because the floats for the festival are dragged
down to Shiohi beach, for most of the day one can sit there and enjoy the performance
in perfect relaxation.
