 This time, I introduce festivals and souvenirs.

Here is a large shrine that has a history over 1000 years and has conducted two fire festivals.

 

今回は、祭りと土産を紹介します。

ここには千年の歴史を誇る神社があり、火祭りがある。

 When I went into the precinct, many flying carps had been fluttering by breeze of May.

The main shrine is visible to the back.

 

境内に入ると、鯉のぼりが五月のそよ風になびいていました。

奥に本殿が見えます。

 

Sagicho festival and Hachimann festival 

< Sagicho festival and Hachimann festival >

 A decoration of a dragon at infographic topping was used with a portable shrine(Mikoshi) like left photo in Sagicho festival.

Surprisingly the material of this dragon is many dry sardines( Tazukuri).

 

Right photo is burning torches of Hachimann festival.

Both festivals always finish with the fire festival at the last, and have been annually held in March and April, spring. 

The fire has what excites people.

The people wished good luck and charmed against bad luck.

 

巻頭写真の龍のダシは、左図のように左義長祭りの御輿に使われたものです。

この龍の材料は、なんと田作(乾燥鰯)なのです。

右の写真は八幡祭りで、松明(たいまつ)を燃やします。

両祭り共に、春の3月、4月に行われ、最後は火祭りで終わります。

火には興奮させる何かがあり、多くは招福除災を願ったようです。

 Taneya is an established shop of Japanese sweets, and Club-Harie is a cake shop.

These two shops were highly visible along the approach to the shrine.

souvenirs

< souvenirs >

 Although a funa-zushi is famous as a souvenir of Lake Biwa, I am not good at this fermented food.

The amber food that has boiled down small fish by soy sauce is delicious.

 

 

琵琶湖の土産と言えば鮒寿司が有名ですが、私はこの発酵食品は苦手です。

飴色した小魚の佃煮は美味しいかった
