The spring festival in Awaji island. : In Ise Kuruma shrine 1


Danjiri

<  Danjiri >

 

On May 5, this year, I went to the shrine in north Awaji.

“Danjiri” means a float of a festival.

There are Danjiri of about 300 in this island.

In this time, these parade from each town to a shrine everywhere.

 

今年5月5日、淡路市の神社に行きました。

この時期、島内では3百台もの「だんじり」が町から神社へと練り歩きます。

 

 Draugh- Danjiri

Children play at the periphery of the Danjiri.

Children inside it have been sounding a drum and some bells.

 

子供達が周りで遊び、中では太鼓と鐘を打ち鳴らしている。

 

Children draw a Danjiri.

Hutonn Danjiri. Hutonn means a Japanese-style bedding, is red thing on top of Danjiri.

Many bearers sway the Danjiri up and down, and two women beat time on top of it.

Saying “ cyo–sa,cyo–sa”

The festive mood was rising to fever pitch.

 

担ぎ手がだんじりを上下に揺らし、上では女子がはやし立てる。

「ちょーさ。ちょーさ。」と。

盛り上がる一時。

 

bearers have grimace of pain

Men drink alcohol, are sweating, and squeeze out voice and power.

The bearers become one with Danjiri.

.

 

男達は、酒を飲み、汗にまみれ、声と力を絞り出す。

担ぎ手が一つになるとき。

 

in the precincts of a shrine

The bearers came front the shine and put Danjiri, then they faithfully drive off the ill luck.

Then, they recited praying for people’s safety this year all together.

Next time is followed.

  1. こんにちは!
    300台もの「だんじり」とは壮観ですね。
    一度、見に行きたいです。

    • 言葉足らずで申し訳ありません。
      300台が一同に介するわけではありません。
      数台、数十台などがそれぞれの町村毎に集合します。
      時期は少しずれます。
      淡路の南の方が数が多く集まります。
