October 20th, Sunday, currently 12:06 PM Today I come to the “Kaketsuka Festival” The Kaketsuka Festival is a festival held at Kifune Shrine in Kaketsuka, Iwata City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Kifune Shrine was seriously believed as a god governing rain when Kaketsuka began to function as a port town. There are about 20 Kifune Shrines in the Tenryu River basin. It is a shrine full of local atmosphere. I was attracted by the beautiful floats. These floats are made of high-quality wood, are fully lacquered and gold-plated, and the embroidery on the tent is gorgeous.

The festivals and food stalls of the Astronomical Age (1532-1554), along with the development of Kakezuka Pass, the first famous port in Enshu, In the middle of the Tokugawa period, the young men of Uchiko wandered the stalls following the passing of the shrine, It is said that it was the beginning of offering a sacred offering The first stall is a two-story building with a big dashi on the stage. The creation of this dashi was reported to have been quite impressive, taking three months to six months. In the past, the purpose was to see this dashi, and the Kaketsuka stand was said to be “unusually stupid once, stupid twice” This word is not a float. At the end of Tokugawa, the stalls were remodeled and changed to single-storey stalls in each town, and as the “Kaketsuka Yatai Festival”, the most famous stalls in Tokai are 9 main stages and 6 Sakai Stages. Lacquer is applied and engraved sculptures carved by masters of various regions such as Kazushiro Tachikawa from Suwa, Shinshu, and Chobei Hayase from Owari, and elaborate embroidery that is unmatched by unprecedented modern people. The Tokugawa era is a stand that gathers in front of Kifune Shrine and is set in front of Kifune Shrine in line with the whistle drums of Oshiko which is decorated with a tent and decorated as an intangible folk cultural asset of Shizuoka Prefecture A collection of artistic frames from the Meiji period to the Meiji period. Let’s talk about the Kaketsuka town. Kakezuka is located at the mouth of the Tenryu River, and has flourished for a long time by the Tenryu River and Kaketsuka Port. The Tenryu River flows from Shinano Lake Suwa for about 215 kilometers and reaches the estuary of Kaketsuka. The Tenryu River has caused floods several times more than before, and it has been called Ramen Tenryu and has caused great damage in the downstream area. From the Edo period, Kaketsuka Port has mainly been used for the shogunate’s timber and rice, as well as the annual tribute to territories such as Hamamatsu Kaoru, Nakaizumi Daikansho and Hatamoto. As Meiji entered Meiji, the shipment of wood and other goods became more active , and Kakezuka became a relay station at Kakezuka Port, and exchanges with Edo, Osaka and other port towns flourished, bringing that culture inland. Local residents treat sake and rice to the festival participants. Kakezuka was also a prosperous port that was said to be a small Edo in Enshu and carried the lives of people. However, as the Tokaido Main Line opened and a freight handling station was established in Nakano-cho (Hamamatsu City) in 1882, the port town that flourished as a hub for water transportation gradually declined. The fire was hit by a big fire, and the center of the town disappeared. Kifune Shrine, located in Kaketsuka Honmachi, was revered by the charterer as the guardian of Kaketsuka Port and the voyage safety. The stand that is seen at the festival of this shrine is a symbol of the Edo culture brought about through the sculpture ship of Kaketsuka Port, such as gorgeous sculptures and tents. Now, the estuary has returned to quiet nature, and after the port has become a desolate wilderness, surrounded by bushes and pine forests. Kakezuka is a village built at the mouth of the Tenryu River that flows into the Enshu Pass. Sediment has accumulated since ancient times, Nakashu developed into Kawanakajima, villages were formed in the Muromachi period, and villagers began to live their lives. In order to protect houses and fields from river floods, villagers sewed embankments around the mainstream to prevent flooding. This bank is called a curved ring, and the inside is called a ring. A bank was built to drop the water that rushed from the upstream to the downstream, and the Enshu plain is reported to have been striped on the ring dyke in each village. Also, Mizukami was enshrined in the village along the river, helping to protect Ryujin. Names of places such as Kawarin and Horinouchi are all taken from around the circle. Kakezuka was also hit by repeated floods of the Tenryu River, and the village of Nakasu between the main stream and the East School River also had a history of fighting with the intense Tenryu River flow. In addition, Kakezuka was hit by a big fire in Meiji 16, 18, 28, 32 and 33, and there is no old record about Kakezuka. Looking up the name of Kaketsuka from the materials published so far, in old books, there are “Kurezuka”, “Missuka”, etc., and some elderly people pronounce “Kakesuka” It seems that it was originally “Missuka” and “Mizuka”. The name “Kurezuka” is a place name that can be seen from the Muromachi period, and the letter “Mizuka” can be seen in the letter of Hirotada Matsudaira in Mikawa in 1556. In addition, the letter “Missuka” is also written on a letter around 1592. And the current name “Kakezuka” has been used in documents from around the year 1751. Kaketsuka has prospered since the Edo period because it has developed as a place of goods gathering or trading by the Tenryu River. The boatman and acupuncturists concentrated in the town of Kaketsuka. Along with this, the recovery industry has flourished, and industries such as sawing (wood grinding), shipyards and sawsmithing have developed. Along with the influx of Edo culture, Kakezuka’s bustle at that time was said to be Enshu in Enshu, and people rushed to Kakezuka if there was no work or goods. Shortly after the opening of the Edo Shogunate, Ryo Tsunokura worked on the freighting of the Fuji River, gathering materials from the Fuji River, Tenryu River, etc. to secure materials for the Sunpu Castle, and demonstrated its power. In November every year, timbers cut from the mountains upstream of the Tenryu River were assembled into a fence and sent to Kaketsuka. Around the year of Aichi (1681), Tsunokura ships began to spread, and materials other than wood began to be carried. At Kaketsuka Port, salmon and Tsunokura ships are constantly lowered In other words, Kakezuka was the key to connecting the villages of the Tenryu River basin with Edo. In Kaketsuka, there were many wholesalers related to timber trade, and these wholesalers took the lead in timber trade. At the beginning of the Meiji era, Yokomachi and Shinmachi were the busiest in Kaketsuka, where Hanayagikai, Yataya, Restaurant, Yuya, Amusement Park, etc. In Moto machi, there were Ryokan Kappo Shirokiya, Otowa-ya, Enomoto, Suzukiya, etc. According to the magazine of Kaketsuka, it was recorded as 153 Shinmachi and 112 Yokomachi at the time of the Meiji period, and there is a job survey of the owner. Of the 153 Shinmachi houses, the ship shop counts 45, followed by 25 daily laborers, 20 carpenters, 14 wood-grown families, 10 fishermen, and others. On the other hand, the breakdown of Yokomachi 112 units consists of 22 households, followed by 16 day laborers, 15 carpenters, 13 shipyards, 7 blacksmiths, 6 fishermen, 6 agriculture and others. You can see that the distribution of occupations is different between Shinmachi and Yokomachi These professions depended on Kaketsuka Port to earn a living. The day worker went out to work with a big eight car and a small boat. In the town of Kaketsuka, you can see many Izu stone walls. This is the reason why the Sengoku Ship stopped at Shimoda Port on Izu after returning to Edo. Depends on. Therefore, there are many stone walls and warehouses using Izu stone in the old houses in the town. In addition, in order to reduce the damage caused by flooding, some of the raised warehouse foundations are seen, but this foundation is often made from water-resistant Tenryu River blue stones that have been transported from upstream by Kakukura ships. In the middle of the Meiji era, it was reported that there was a canal that could go to and from the port in the town of Kaketsuka. This canal is said to have been called Gengorobori, but it currently does not remain. In this era of Kaketsuka prosperity, the town has the Hanayagi world, there are dozens of amusement parks in a small town, geisha shops and restaurants lined up. However, as the function of the port was gradually lost due to sediment deposited at the mouth of the Tenryu River, Kaketsuka, which flourished as a port town, gradually declined. You cannot see the image of the former prosperity from the current streets of Kaketsuka. However, if you look at the stalls that are presented at the Kifune Shrine festival, you can endure the prosperity of Kakezuka at that time. Kaketsuka’s history as a port town dates back to the Muromachi period. This Kifune Shrine ’s ritual “Owatari” is an annual event in which the sacred body is sent from the shrine to the temporary shrine, and the virtues of God are given to the boy. The Kaketsuka Festival is a place where you can visit the stalls to accompany the shrine. The original stalls began with a cart, a stage, and a two-story structure, and were remodeled with the times under the influence of the religions and cultures of the time, and remodeled with the times under the influence of the religions and cultures of the time. The Kakezuka of the era flourished mainly in the shipping industry, and the townspeople’s finances were abundant. Decorated with elaborate embroidery tents, it is a collection of the best arts and crafts of the time. Traveling while gorgeous lanterns sparkle in this gorgeous floats will give you a fascinating charm. Festival floats are designated as town-designated tangible folk cultural properties Kaketsuka Yatai Hayashi is a musical instrument played by large drums, small drums, and horizontal flute amongst the stalls that circulate at the Kifune Shrine festival. According to legend, during the period of the North and South Korea, the Emperor Gohran’s prince, Sora Ryoo, headed for Toya Kunii Iya. The storm was off the coast, the fleet was scattered, and the master’s ship was able to arrive at Enshu Shirahane Beach. On the way to Iiya, who escaped the marine accident, Sora Oo met the Kifune Shrine’s great festival, and the villagers welcomed him and prayed for the prince’s future. At this time, it was reported that several songs were taught by Kyoko Koyoka and other songs by Nakamado Nakanobu. The Hayashi is designated as an intangible folk cultural property designated by Shizuoka Prefecture. Kakezuka flourished as a port town where wood from the upstream Tenryu River was shipped to Edo and Osaka during the Edo period. Already in the latter half of the 15th century, there was a record of Gozan monk, Shushu Kyukyu staying in Kaketsuka, and it is thought that it had been functioning as a port since the Middle Ages. In the town, there are buildings such as Tsukura family and Hayashi family that convey the image of a shipping wholesaler, and you can see stone warehouses and sarcophagus made of Izu stone loaded on the way back from Edo. In 2012, the Shibuya family (the liquor store) and the former Kaketsuka Post Office building became registered tangible cultural properties. It is said that the festival of Kaketsuka, where luxurious floats were made against the background of such a wholesale dealership, has been popular for a long time. Kifune Shrine, upstream of Kyoto Kamo-Shi, was a great god of water, but this shrine was solicited to Kakezuka when Kakezuka began to function as a port town. Most of the president of Kifune Shrine was a treasure merchant operating a shipping wholesaler. Within the precincts of Kifune Shrine, which has been worshiped as a shrine that prays for the safety of cruise ships, there is a “Kakezuka Port Kaifuno Monument” made by a great merchant. In addition, there will be a Myojin-maru, a barge drawn by Shinmachi youth, for the shrine visit. Yatai Hayashi has been handed down since the North and South Korea war era, and is composed of one large drum, one small drum, and two or three whistle. There are about 8 kinds of eggplants, but it is often referred to as “Tanteko” in the local way of playing small drums rather than the song name. The most common song is “Idiot Reiko”, which is deceived when stalls are drawn around the town. The songs that were tuned earlier were “Imiko Yoko” and “Ikiko Yodo”. The former is played when the stand is pulled into the palace and the latter is played when it is pulled out. In addition, “Kagura Lion” is played when the stall heads to Okariya for the passing of the shrine. It is a majestic song sometimes played. In addition, there are “Lion Oba” and “Lion Motoko” and “Michiko Michiko” playing while walking along the way. In September of this year, the Yatai Riko Preservation Society celebrated the 50th anniversary of the event and showed the performance of the Yatai Riko to people who visited the Rugby World Cup at Ecopa Stadium. In addition, we are teaching local children to Ryuyo Nishi Elementary School second graders and nursery school children, and are working to develop successors. Shizuoka Prefecture is ranked in the top 5 in the annual income rankings by prefecture, so there are many Japanese houses.
