カテゴリー:Japanese culture

なんでか東京では阿波踊りといえば高円寺!みたいになっとるけど、本場は【徳島】じゃよ~!
えらいやっちゃ、えらいやっちゃ、ヨイヨイヨイヨイ
踊る阿呆(あほう)に見る阿呆、同じ阿呆なら踊らな損々~♪
というわけで、次徳島に帰れるのがいつになるのかわからないので、10年ぶりくらい?に阿波踊りで踊ってきました!!(にわか蓮で!!!)
こんにちは!Chikaです。
やっぱりこの音を聞くと血が騒ぎますね♪
懐かしい音と匂い。昔と違うのは、蚊が少なくなったことかしら。
Hi, I am chika.
It may have been over ten years ago when I finally came here.
Born in Tokushima, I am accustomed to Awa Odori since I was a child.
When I hear the sound, I am Sooo exciting!! It is very fun time!!
I like and I recommend you to come here:)

What is Awa Odori?

Awa Odori is Bon Odori originating in Tokushima. It is one of the traditional Japanese traditional arts that has a history of about 400 years from Edo.
Groups of choreographed dancers and musicians known as ren (連) dance through the streets, typically accompanied by the shamisen lute, taiko drums, shinobue flute and the kane bell. Performers wear traditional obon dance costumes, and chant and sing as they parade through the streets. Awa is the old feudal administration name for Tokushima Prefecture, and odori means dance.

The dancers are fools and The watchers are fools, Both are fools alike so Why not dance?
The dancers also chant hayashi kotoba call and response patterns such as “Yattosa, yattosa”, “Hayaccha yaccha”, “Erai yaccha, erai yaccha”, and “Yoi, yoi, yoi, yoi”. These calls have no semantic meaning but help to encourage the dancers.
During the daytime a restrained dance called Nagashi is performed, but at night the dancers switch to a frenzied dance called Zomeki. As suggested by the lyrics of the chant, spectators are often encouraged to join the dance.
That’s why I also danced! ! It is hard to see a little, but the arrow shows me.lol
This is called Niwaka ren.

Whether there are foreigners who participate in the Awa Odori in Tokushima

Actually, I was able to find people from other countries yesterday. But it is very few.
Do you want to participate in the festival next year? If so, please let me know!
