Tsukumi fan dance
Dance figure ... which is excited in ... beauty
With the wish of the memorial service of a brave man and the farmer killed in battle now for the age of civil strife approximately 450 years ago, I am informed it when I founded a folding fan dance to cross a flow of the traditional dance of Kyoto performed to the accompaniment of folk songs.
In the middle of flavor, the confused fight of the brave man who drew an Australian bow to the full, the figure of "mirrors set against each other" that an ancient rite was refined and enjoyed it, and to be dressed in, the dance look that the flow of the folding fan which it was felt that I just saw a voice of the victory of "eieio", the heart of the samurai who, as it were, remembered those days as for the end and loaded with beauty, glamor, the joys and sorrows was beautiful were succeeded as the folk art which represented Tsukumi city until today, and this dance was appointed in formlessness folk cultural assets of Oita in 2012.
"A Tsukumi fan dance meeting" is held for the end of August, and approximately 800 show the dance of the folding fan including "a folding fan dance daughter" authorized by the city every year from an adult in the Tsukumi city to the child society.
