Kimono Flea Market ICHIROYA's News Letter No.698

f:id:yumejitsugen1:20170602143836j:plain

Dear Ichiroya newsletter readers,

Hello, How are yon doing?
I am Megumi.
I have been working at Ichiroya since this spring.
This is my first time to work at a office.
I was a teacher for children.
Although I am a rolling stone , I have been continuing to study one thing.
It is "Kagura-Mai" that means Japanese dancing of shirine maiden.

This spring, I started a class to teach Kagura at my shirine.
I have some students.
They are an engineer, a fortune teller and a dancer, etc.
I want them to dance Kagura at monthly festivals as soon as possible.

Have you ever seen the Japanese animation movie ‘Your name (Kimino Na ha)’?
The heroine, Mitsuha was dancing original Kagura-Mai in the movie.
I was interested in Mitsuha’s dancing, so I ended up going to a theater twice.
In reality, there are many different kinds of Kagura.
For example, it seems that Naniwa-Kagura is from Edo-priod.
The most popular song of Kagura is "Urayasu-no-mai".
But it is rather new, from Showa-priod.

June is coming.
Kagura-Mai could be seen as the part of wedding ceremonies according to Shinto rites.
Even in Japan, the mainstream of wedding ceremonies is Christian rites now.
I want to show you Shinto rites.
The pictures show that they are remakes of Christian rites.
We have to bring stuff to decor chapels to Shinto hall in two cars.

In addition, there are also many other different kinds of Kagura.
I watched "Kameda-Dai-Kagura" at the castle of Osaka during holidays.
I hear that they came from Akita.
Their dancing was powerful and impressive.
