The Palace Float,Hamamatu Festival(2014) 2
Japan

The palace float (ごてんやたいgoten-yatai) "a stand" points to a festival car of an Enshu district which is decorated with a luxurious sculpture or curtain. As for the opening of the palace stand of the Hamamatsu festival, geisha and a large number of people of Temmacho and Chitosecho parade around as stands grow to bells and a drums, attendees of the floats are the returning kite-fliers since the Meiji era. In the Taisho era, floats which displayed artificial flowers and a lanterns were used. From the early days of the Showa era, each town has made grand floats competitively, and floats included many carvings as roofs became more and more elaborate, with floats of today being gorgeous. The excitement of the daytime kite-fighting dissipates at dusk as it cools down, and the stage of the Hamamatsu festival moves to the center of commerce of Hamamatsu-shi. The wonderful sculpture and decoration made of intricate plans from each and every town are signaled by the sound of the samisen which a player plucks, a flute and the musical accompaniment of neatly dressed children, who play on the lit floats which move slowly wrapped up in pageantry of elegance attracting people with their beauty like a royal festival picture scroll. There are 104 palace stands participating in Hamamatsu festival, and 83 of those parade around the center of commerce.

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
