The festival at Sumiyoshi-shrine, locating next city where my husband was born, was revived 3 years ago. The first privately-owned cement company in Japan founded by Kasai Jinnpachi developed the city. This festival is to commemorate his contribution.
Let me introduce the high light of the festival; 3 Portable Shrines and the Dance of the Dragon , which is the trade mark of the company.
First and second one was made by one of my husband's band member.
Link to the more detail about the 2 shrine from last year.
*First one is modeled after the Tokkuri←link -shaped kiln (we put sake in tokkuri) to burn limestone. The roof is for the protecting porpouse. This old type of kiln is no longer in use now.
*Second one is called "セメン樽, semendaru. cement barrel"
They used to use barrels to carry cement.
*Third one; Another big company used to make sulfuric acid. These crock (hope the right word) were made to put them.
*High light of Matsuri scene*
|Dace of the dragon (trade mark of the cement company) was great.|
