This is the prompt report of JIYUGAOKA KUMANO SHRINE FESTIVAL.
It will be held in September 5 (Sat.) 2015 

A portable shrine "Mikoshi" is carried by Japanese people in a summer festival and a autumn festival. But Jiyugaoka Kumano Shrine has arranged Mikoshi carrying for foreign visitor in September 5! 
It is very rare in Japan as you know. They get it for international goodwill. Then the fee is free! Moreover they get a special cloth for Mikoshi carrying, and after the carrying Mikoshi, they'll get a BBQ party for a carrier!

Anyway the fixed number is 50, which is the first 50 people on the application.
If you have not Japanese nationality, and you speak Japanese or English or French or Chinese, and you are 14 years old and over...apply soon by fax!

If your application is over 50th, why don't you go this festival? Because Jiyugaoka is a nice small shopping town, and Kumano Shrine is a nice place. You maybe have a very good time!                                                                                                       (Sae)

The basement 2 gallery in Tokyo University  of  the Art  TOKYO GEIJUTU DAIGAKU ART MUSEUM


The painting of a Japanese ghost is named "Yurei-ga".
This exhibitions' main paintings from Sanyutei Encho's Yurei-ga collection. Encho is the most famous professional storyteller in Japan which was born in the Edo era, especially Japanese ghost story field. In this exhibition you can enjoy various kinds of Japanese ghosts on a very famous Ukiyow and a great master's Japanese painting.

Anyway in Japan, there is the traditional culture in summer which is people enjoy ghost story. It has been said that people become feeling a cold by it.
When Encho was still in alive and well, people enjoyed his ghost storytelling and Kabuki performance based his ghost story. 
The Kabuki titled "Botan dourou" has been one of the most famous Kabuki performance ever now. I've gone to see the play a few times. Also I saw the movie "Botan dourou" on TV many times. I was not so scared in the fact, I felt it's a sad story. Some Ukiyoe of Kabuki "Botan dourou" are on display at the gallery. 

On heat day in Tokyo's summer, why don't you enjoy "Yurei-ga"?  
I think Yureiga is absolutely not scarier than the movie "Ring" and "Juon", don't worry! (Sae)
