⇓WH.323 REVIVE ❸ 祭り Japanese festival⇑

Besides joining the patrol of OMIKOSHI, there are many culture events to experience the authentic Japan—even in the hustle and bustle of Tokyo!


I just came across this performance of Edo period style on my way home, which intrigued people so much to watch how he plays with the ball, tea cup, and box 🤡 Next time, don’t forget to check the shine in your neighbourhood where the hidden gems invite you to explore 🍁

ARTS Japan’ project made by BBC Four introduced Japanese customs with succinct videos cross the history to modern art. Recommended:)

◐ WH.Diary 復活連載三: 祭り ◑

Day 49 亀戸。天神社大祭に、御神輿 ii

...昨天御鳳輦渡御祭所再現的平安朝風華,正是吸收唐風的成果。而今天的重頭戲「氏子神輿宮入り」中所指的「氏子」:以地方上一間神社為中心,所形成的祭祀圈文化,也和中國的土地公祭拜息息相關。..more

除了親身參與夏天的お神輿外,一路到秋天還有很多體驗日本道地文化的機會,即使是在非常摩登的東京!


譬如: 和日本人一起叫賣,參加什麼都很便宜的「縁日」市集、穿著清爽浴衣,和日本人一起跳盂蘭盆會的盆踊り、或是注意附近神社哪位神明過生日,通常都會有意想不到的驚喜。這段雜技表演是我「不小心」在田無神社撞見的—看他從普通的球、茶杯、到最後的方盒子,一路轉到油紙傘上非常有意思!


BBC Four之前做了一系列 ‘ARTS Japan’的專題,每篇都有深入但簡潔的影片,推薦給大家 🌾
