毛呂山町の流鏑馬
Japan

毛呂山町の出雲伊波比神社(いずもいわいじんじゃ)では、春(3月第2日曜日)と秋(11月3日)に流鏑馬が行われています。

秋の流鏑馬は、3つの当番区から3頭の祭馬が出て、流鏑馬が行われています。3頭の馬はそれぞれ一の馬、二の馬、三の馬と呼ばれ、一の馬が白で源氏を、二の馬が紫で藤原氏を、三の馬が赤で平氏をあらわしており、鎌倉武士の稽古、精進、合戦、凱旋という一連の生活のようすを表現しているといわれています。

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.
