巫女、miko
巫女、miko is a shrine maiden.

My daughter is practicing the miko dance with her friends for the special service which is held on the new year day.




The 雅楽(gagaku), the Japanese court music, and the dance style are really pure and simple.

The music and dance tone gives me a feeling of sheer solemn something. 
 
This is the first experience for her to perform for gods.
So she practices very hard.

And I have to learn how to dress the Kimono, Hakama and the special hair attachment!
I also need to practice :-)


You can wear Japanese KIMONO for free!
It’s that time of year again, when people from various countries and life
paths gather together to celebrate a fabulous day of multiculturalism and
internationalization and all that good stuff! Yes! The Hello Gifu, Hello World event is coming up on Saturday, September 25th!







For those of you who have yet to experience this annual FREE event, I highly
recommend popping your head in and checking out the scene. It includes:
performances; a bazaar; booths introducing countries from around the world;
opportunities to dress in traditional clothing; and a chance to try some
sweets and snacks from around the world! There will also be a screening of
the film, “All the Invisible Children” running from 1:00-3:15 for those
who are interested.



I am uploading the Japanese flyer, as well as an English translation of the
back of the flyer on the Gifujets Yahoo! group, so feel free to download
those files. The English translation (completed by Colin O’Gorman) lists
all of the performances scheduled for the day. These performances will be
taking place on not one, but TWO stages over the course of the day!



So to break down the details:



Event: Hello Gifu, Hello World 2010

Date: Saturday, September 25

The Fureai Kaikan building is located across the street from the Gifu

from Nishi Gifu Station. Below is a link to the bus schedule (Japanese):

Summer is over
It has been really hot this summer.
My friend told me that Gujo-Hachiman was the hottest place in Japan the other day!
Yes, here is a very very hot spot!
The reason is not only for the weather, but also for our
ODORI spirits! 
Well, we Gujo people have Gujo-Odori dance festival every summer.
It is said that the Gujo Odori Dance started over 400 years ago, and it still continues today.
In this summer we had 33 ODORI nights from mid july to Sep. 4th, and during OBON, from Aug. 13rd - 16th, the dances lasted all through the night.   

Last Saturday was the final ODORI night for this summer.
A lot of people enjoyed dancing this special yearly night.

Finally the last dance for this year was finished.
And all of us made a lantern parade to see the YAKATA, the musicians turret, off.

Gujo summer was over.
