Little Dancer – Chichibu
At the Chichibu Night Festival, the Chichibuyo Matsuri (秩父夜祭) in Saitama prefecture just north of Tokyo I saw this wonderful little dancers perform on one of the giant dashi (festival carts). It’s the first time I see Japanese traditional dance where the performer is dressed like this. Even though it is a night festival, the day is full of performances and events. The little dancer was accompanied by a couple of shamisen players.
As a bonus, I leave you with the final picture, which contains a few words of wisdom regarding parenthood, a fitting theme I think. Maybe some of my native English speaking readers could have a go at translating it for us? My English would not do justice to the beautiful Japanese message. Enjoy the weekend everyone!
