a dedicatory a Japanese dance

北澤八幡神社で奉納舞を舞わせていただきました。9月の気持ちのいい夕暮れに毎年、こんなに素敵な能舞台に立たせていただき嬉しいです。この日の演目は「芦刈」でした。ある夫婦が別れ、おちぶれて芦刈になってしまった男と、お金持ちになった女が再会し、復縁するおめでたい唄です。

I dedicated a Japanese dance to the god of a Kitazawa Hachiman Shrine. I was very glad that I could do at sunset in September. It was very comfortable and spiritual! This program is Ashikari. The tittle means mowing a reed. About the story, after a divorce, ex-husband worked mowing a reed and he was poor. But ex-wife was rich because she became a nanny in rich house. The man and woman met and married again!
