Kitazawa Hachiman Shrine 2016





















The Kitazawa Hachiman Shrine Festival was held on September 3rd and 4th. The shrine is near my home. I performed a Japanese dance. Its program was 'Takasagao' (classic noh play) and 'Matuzukushi' (all sorts of pine). It was the first that I had performed two twice in a row. Every year, it rains before my performance. But the music starts, and it stops raining. This year, the same thing happened. The shrine god might possibly clean me. Thank you for coming to the festival! Now, I am 'Nataori', a law class taecher, so I would like to try a high-class examination of dance's teachesr by 2020 Tokyo Olympic. There are many beautiful choreography for a professional. 'Nataori' has not yet practice play according to the rule. I feel that the time is coming when I have to get the new performance because I hope many people enjoy it!

9月3日と4日に、地元の北澤八幡さまの例大祭がありました。今年の奉納舞の演目は『高砂』と『松づくし』。二つの演目を連続でやるのは初めての試みでした。私の出番になると毎年、雨がぱらぱらっと降ってきますが、不思議な事に曲がかかると雨がやみます。舞台に立つ前に神様が清めてくださっているようです。みなさま、暑い中お越しいただきありがとうございました。今は名取りですが、東京オリンピックまでに師範の免許を取りたい思うようになってきました。師範でしかできない素晴らしい演目が吉村流にあります。これからも、八幡さまで多くの方々に楽しんでいただきたいなあと思うと、そろそろ新しい技を身につける時期が来ているような気がするのです。
