Reiwa 4 fan dance girl certification ceremony
~ Gracefully dancing dance ~
It is said that about 450 years ago, the fan dance was founded with the wishes of the warriors and peasants who died during the Warring States period.
This dance depicts a brave man drawing a powerful bow, a mirror in the midst of a battle, dressed in an old-fashioned and respectful way, and finally, the voice of victory with "ei-ei-oh", just like the heart of a samurai who remembers those days. The elegant, rich, joyful and graceful flow of the folding fan has been handed down to this day as a representative local performing art of Tsukumi City.
Every year in the end of the 8th month August, "Tsukumi fun dance competition" is held, and about 800 people from adults to children's groups in Tsukumi city, including "Fan dance girls" certified by the city, perform fan dance.
