Traditional dreams with " Dance " Japanese calligraphy




  While more than 400 years in remote place, apostles have inherited the manners and customs.
  Anyone has hardly looked. Nobody has almost been here.

  It's mysterious, but here is the place where Christianity was first introduced into Japan.





  Religion and culture. Those all harmonized peacefully all the time.
  Churches, Temples and Shinto shrines

  Each other's the respect.






  The treasure will be succeeded to from now on.
  It is their soul.

  lovely.




  別れ端や  笠手に提げて  夏羽織
  松尾 芭蕉 (1644 – 1694)

  parting the time  hang on shade  summer half-coat
  Matsuo Bashō (1644 – 1694)







   "舞" (bu, or mau). It is translated as dance, posture, prance, brandish, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Semi-cursive script.

   Etymology : Ideogrammic compound
    無 (nothing) + 舛 (steps)


   The innocent dance is noble.
   They are the incarnations.

   The drum, the gong, the flute, the song.
   Those the tones, the sound, the beating.

   All will be resonant mentally.



   御目出度  存じ候  今朝の秋 
   小林 一茶  (1763 - 1827)

   congratulations  feel good news  this morning autumn  
   Kobayashi Issa  (1763 - 1827)









  The festival enlivens my blood.
  A certain something is recalled in subconsciousness.


  " Hirado Janguwara dance "



  The west end of Japan.
  Here is Hirado-Island, Nagasaki prefecture.

  39. Hello ruma,
    その地方にはその地方独特の香りや歴史が感じられるお祭りがあるのはとても幸せなことです。8月、奈良でもたくさんありました。鮮やかな飾りの傘と浴衣、笛と太鼓、なぜかなつかしさを感じてしまいます。rumaさんの目を通してみた素朴な伝統、とても素晴らしいと思います。

  49. Uma das grandes bênções da vida
    é a experiência que os anos vividos nos concebem.
    Aniversariar é uma amostra das oportunidades que temos de aprender a contar os nossos dias.
    mais uma janela e abre diante dos meus olhos,
    mais um espinho foi retirado da flor,
    restando somente a beleza de tão bela data.
    Com fé, na esperança e no empenho por ser melhor a cada dia.
    Seguindo pelos caminhos da verdade e do amor.
    Um dia encontrarei o mais belo jardim, o jardim que representará a realização
    dos meus maiores sonhos.
    Com saudades .
    desejo um feliz final de semana
    venha curtir meu aniversário.
    Beijos na sua Alma,Evanir.

  73. Elles sont toujours étonnantes, ces danses qui nous viennent du bout du monde et pourtant, elle nous parlent de coutumes ancestrales, de la vie et le font à grand renforts de couleurs et de rythme. Nous avons aussi nos folklores et les touristes étrangers les trouvent étonnants aussi. C'est comme si nous avions oublié que le monde avait une mémoire. Il est nécessaire de montrer ces fêtes de croiser les cultures, elles rapprochent les peuples. En cela, tu fait œuvre utile pour l'humanité. Mais je crois que c'est déjà ta démarche dans la vie.
    Bravo
    Avec mon amitié.
