A world of crazy words that enjoys watching and deepens

Great Confucianism

Do you know that Kyogen can be learned by the general public?
Both my father and grandfather have presided over the so-called dojo called "republic" and have made an effort to disseminate Kyogen. There are many young and old men and women who are learning Kyogen, and I have been practicing in childhood since I was a child.
* 2 years old. First time on Noh stage.

I have been told "Kyorogen is not something to watch but to learn?" Until then, I said, "Why are you teaching me?" I have a look back at me.
In the old days, Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Ieyasu Tokugawa, etc. also played Kyogen himself, and each Daimyo learned about it. There was no doubt that "teaching" had always been a long time since the house of Oiso was also used to teach kyoto to town actors and to appear at events such as recruiting enthusiastic.
* 4 years old. First stage. Co-star with his grandfather's apprentice at "Shinpei".

There are 180 owned songs (repertory) in Kyogen, but there may be limits to learning them all and telling them to the next generation without forgetting. However, if memory is revived by teaching people, I can not forget what I learned. In addition, you can understand the program deeply by teaching many times, and the model is also refinedKu. While teaching, there are many discoveries such as "Oh! Such a thing !?" Furthermore, practice is done without using sound source, that is, because it keeps speaking almost all day, it leads to improvement of one's own skill and practice of vocalization. It can be said that it is taught by teaching.

As a personal matter, I got married and moved to Nakanoshima (Tama Ward, Kawasaki City). Since it coincided with the time when the child was born, I went to visit the Nakanoshima Inari Shrine, which is my god, and there was the Kagura Hall there.
I can do crazy here.
I thought so and immediately called Miyaji, I was glad to offer.

Just when the Great East Japan Earthquake happened. Many of the customers who participate in "Kyogen LABO", which I have planned independently, are engaged in activities rooted in the community. Such keywords overlap and began to think about "area".
Although the word "area" has the meaning of referring to a place, I think that it is also "living" in "the ground". To cherish and enrich the place where you live now. And adjusting the environment will expand the circle of people and make it a livable city.

Furthermore, I want to make children who grow up experience the many nature and culture. By touching the culture, the mind is opened, and the self-discovery and the discovery of others, the emergence and respect of individuality are born. I started the Kyogen class on Nakanoshima because of all sorts of occasions.
It was not easy to attract customers if you open the lid, but now seven students are having fun learning the gossip.
* State of the first Nakanoshima Inari Shrine dedication

And again this year, there is a dedication enthusiasm by all the classroom students on Saturday, October 6th. This will be the sixth time this year, but I will take pride as an activity rooted in the community. I would be glad if many people in the area could convey the fullness and funnyness of Kyogen.
