挙母まつりFestival of KOROMO-shrine
Japan
毎年、10月の第3土曜に試楽祭、日曜に本楽祭を開催。試楽祭では町内を山車が曳きまわり、夜は挙母神社にて七度参りが行われます。本楽祭では、挙母神社にて山車の曳き込み、山車の曳き出しが行われます。 「ワッショ、ワッショ」のかけ声のもと、大量の紙吹雪が舞う中を山車が練り歩く様が圧巻の挙母まつり。荒々しく躍動的な力強さと、八輌の山車や紙吹雪による華やかさを兼ね備えた、三河地区でも有数のおまつりです。起源は古く、江戸時代後期から明治初期に今の形になったと言われ、挙母城下の心意気が今に伝えられています。 まつりは2日間にわたり、「試楽祭」と「本楽祭」が行われます。試楽祭では、八輌の見事な山車がそれぞれの町内を曳きまわり、夜は挙母神社において、八つの町の人々が提灯をもって五穀豊穣を祈願して境内を七周する「七度参り」が行われます。2日目の本楽祭で、奉納のために挙母神社に一斉に集まり、花火の号砲を合図に、紙吹雪とともに練り歩きます。愛知県の有形民族文化財、豊田市の指定文化財に指定される八輌の山車が、そろって挙母神社に奉納される姿は、まさに壮観な風景です。

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.
