歌舞伎役者の顔見世、博多座船乗り込みが毎年５月29日に博多で行われます。5月帰福中に参加しました。今年はお天気に恵まれました。 Hakataza Funanorikomi:Hakataza June Kabuki shows are held at Hakataza Theater in Hakata (Fukuoka), Japan every year. They have a Funanorikomi ceremony on May 29th. We got tickets to watch it again. The weather was very nice this year. I attended it while I was visiting Fukuoka, Japan.
博多着物を着る会の方々に便乗。朝8時半から着物の着付けと髪結いです。母と。 I went with the Wear Kimono Group in Hakata. I made an appointment at a salon at 8:30 am for hair and wearing Kimono with my mother.
博多着物を着る会で11時に近くのホテルに集合しランチ。舟乗り込みの歴史などをききました。 The members of Wear Kimono Group Hakata gathered for lunch at 11 am at a near-by hotel. We learned the history of "Hakataza Funanorikomi".
We waited for the boats to come in the back of Kawabata Zenzai Square along the river in Kami Kawabata Mall, Fukuoka, Japan. A boarding ceremony was held at Canal City Hakata at 1 pm. The boats left there and "koujou" greeting was done at Kawabata Zenzai Square for a few minutes from around 1:45 pm.
歌舞伎役者、芸子さん、市長、ゲストらを乗せた舟。 Boats carrying Kabuki actors, Geisha girls, City mayor, guests, etc.
The boats left one by one after the "koujou" greeting. The boats will float until Hakata Riverain where Hakataza theater is located. The boat pilots are gathered here from Yanagawa city every year. In Yanagawa there are many sight-seeing river floating boats.
We were blessed with sunny weather this year. Last year a typhoon passed through the Northern Kyushu Island at the exact time. Funanorikomi ceremony was cancelled.
