羽後町 Ugo Town

西馬音内の盆踊

Nishimonai Bon festival dance

羽後町西馬音内に伝わる国の重要無形民俗文化財「西馬音内の盆踊」は、約700年前に源親という修行僧によってもたらされた豊年祈願の踊りが、慶長6年(1601年)西馬音内城主小野寺一族が滅び遺臣たちが主君を偲んで捧げた盆供養の踊りと合流・融合し今の姿になったと伝えられ、毎年8月16日から18日まで行われます。深くかぶった網笠に艶やかな端縫い衣装、亡者を思わせる彦三頭巾に藍染の踊り浴衣の老若男女が、かがり火の列を挟んで行き交うように踊ります。

Nishimonai Bon festival dance is an important intangible folk cultural asset that has been handed down in Nishimonai, Ugo town. The dance originated as a ceremonious display that called for a good harvest and was introduced by a trainee monk named Gen-shin about 700 years ago. This dance was combined with another one performed by a surviving retainer of the Onodera tribe during a memorial service for a lord of Nishimonai castle. This event is held from August 16th to 18th. Men and women of all ages dance while wearing indigo-dyed Yukata, low wicker hats, brilliant top-stitched clothes, and Hikosa-zukin, a type of hood worn in remembrance of the deceased. They dance to and fro around the bonfire.
