Great Confucianism

After the end of the year, the rehearsal space will begin to be cleaned, and the New Year's decorations will be decorated so that you can invite the year-old god ... This will not change at any house.
Order daikon ren, matsumatsu, akatsuki, back white, paper hangings, ring ornaments, ball ornaments, fixed long lines ... these are all you need to decorate the school.
In the upper four corners of the rehearsal hall, there are fixed ropes, daikon rennan in the god shelf, jade and kadomatsu in the entrance. At the important places such as the floor, put a rose on a circle and a rose and a back white and decorate it. This is the decoration of the New Year.

New Year's Day. The disciple gathers at the rehearsal hall and performs the "Hajime Hajime".
After a few days, the company (school students) will gather and perform the "Mai First Ceremony".
This is a tradition of good practice and a unique event of the Noh world.

On the stage is the axis of the Emperor God, the face and the bell of the "Black Rose" used by the Kyogen style in the most sacred item "The Rose" in Noh. Salt, rice and sake in the bowl that has been dropped from the divine shelf. Decorate these on a special altar, and the ceremony will take place in front of it. With the New Year, I pray for the safety of the one-year stage. "alt =" "width =" 3264 "height =" 2448 "/>

Lastly, I got sake, salt and rice on Sanho to cleanse myself and then go to the New Year party.
The most exciting part of the New Year's party is the "Fortune". It may be done anywhere, but there is an interesting "play" unique to Kyogen. The point is that the words of the demeanor that fit the lucky items (approximately 500 yen) prepared by the participants are written and attached to Yuto.

"Now, it's time for good luck!"
We start off vigorously with the voice of our job.
"The thing that hit Mr. 〇 is an exhibition from Mr. × X. It is a line from" 膏 "to" Sorry, sucking, sucking ", but what is the content now? "
By the way, "potty" is an external preparation that is applied to a piece of paper or a piece of cloth and stuck to the affected area to suck out the poison. The Kyogen performance "Bokyaku-nuri" is a story in which Kamakura and Kyoto's plaster-based medicines "suck and compare".
That's why the contents of the goodies are "desk cleaner".
It is a gift exchange with crazy word play only with crazy words, but there are some things that have been done well, and there are things that are too strong to understand well and laughter is endless.

I think now that it is the beginning of a year worthy of crazy, but when I was a child, I was disgusted and reluctant to find such a series of events during the New Year holidays.
"I want to spend a" normal "New Year because I don't care about new year's gifts!"

By the way, it is only a place to leave this year.
When cleaning up, look back over a year and reflect on your mistakes and thank you for new encounters and successes.
YearHope for the happiness and development of many people who support us.
Although it is said that "Heisei last", I would like to welcome the new year with smiles and gratitude unchanged every year.
