A blog of Japan. You can see Japanese daily life and scenery through my camera. All photos are taken in Funabashi city and surround.
Today, I happened to see this attraction in front of funabashi railway station.Hikeshi means old day's fire fighters.( I suppose it was in 17, 18 century. )They were singing a song with having tools for Hikeshi.
As they are fire fighters, I understand the scale.For the other tools, it's more difficult; Their dance seems to be very masculine;Was it a kind of memory-day for fire fighters?
Usually it is performed infront of fire station in new year.
What a lively attraction it is! A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR and all the best wishes to you, Nobu!
Very eye-catching! Glad you have captured the performance. Never heard of it before.
