ねぶながし行事

The event of Nebu Nagashi

能代ねぶながし行事は「役七夕(やくたなばた)」とも呼ばれ、鯱鉾(しゃちほこ)を乗せた勇壮華麗な大型城郭灯篭が運行される夏の伝統行事。千年以上の歴史を持つと伝わる本行事は江戸時代から五町組により輪番制で行われ、現在は大町組・上町組・萬町組・清助町組・柳町組で構成されている。8月1日の会所開きに始まり、6日7日は大型灯篭が曳き回され、7日夜に米代川で火を放ち焼き流す「鯱流し」が行われる。夜空に浮かび上がる荘厳な灯篭は見るものを圧倒する。(秋田県記録選択無形民俗文化財)

The event held in Nebu Nagashi of Noshiro city, which is also called “Yakutanabata,” is a traditional event held during summer. People carry huge castle-shaped lanterns with Shachihoko, a fabulous dolphinlike fish that were traditionally used to decorate the roof ridges of a Japanese castle. This event has been held for more than one thousand years since the Edo period through what’s called a Gomachi-gumi system, a type of rotating community association. Currently, it is composed of Omachi-gumi, Kanmachi-gumi Aramachi-gumi, Seisukemachi-gumi, and Yanagimachi-gumi. On the first of August, people open up the meeting place. On the sixth and seventh they parade the huge lanterns around the city and then in the evening of seventh, the lanterns are burnt and released in Yoneshiro river, which is called “Shachi Nagashi.” Audiences are impressed by the magnificent lantern into the night sky. (This event is registered as Akita’s selected intangible properties of folk culture.)
