Hikeshi




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?
