Owari Tsushima Tenno Matsuri Festival2019年07月15日 (月曜日)

☆Tsushima Tenno Matsuri drawn by Hiroshige
The ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) known for The Fifty Three Stations of the Tokaido (1833, 55 nishiki-e, or coloured woodblock prints) drew the yoi-matsuri (eve of the festival) of Tsushima Tenno Matsuri in Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces (a series of 70 prints). Hiroshige’s work was also very well received because it showed a glimpse into the outside world which people were longing for in those days. As indicated by the fact that it is depicted in Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces, Tsushima Tenno Matsuri was the most famous festival in Owari and one of the most magnificent festivals in Japan. The picture of asa-matsuri (morning festival) was drawn by Hiroshige II.

We have Tsushima Tenno Matsuri Festival at Tennogawa Kouen Park form 27th July to 28th July.
Come to see us at Tsushima-shi.

Owari Tsushima Tenno Matsuri Festival2019年07月07日 (日曜日)

☆Tsushima Tenno Matsuri enjoyed by Oda Nobunaga
The historical record Taisai Ikadabaguruma Kiroku, contains the following passage: “Kazusa-dono (Nobunaga) enjoyed the festival from atop the bridge. His wives arranged a viewing platform on the bridge and watched it from there.” In 1558. Another 24 years later, Nobunaga died at the Incident of Honnoji Temple. At the Tsushima Tenno Matsuri of that year in 1582, all decorations were removed and danjiri boats cruised without any decoration. The oyama boats, or grand festival floats, were also called off to express condolences to Nobunaga and his son Nobutada who were also guardians of Tsushima.

☆Contribution of Owari Clan
Tsushima Tenno Matsuri was regarded as an Owari clan festival and enjoyed a lot of patronage. The clan donated rice, boats and bamboo which were called Mitorimono (three items of trade).
As for the contribution of rice, a total of 50 koku was donated to five former villages of Tsushima, in addition, 4 cho 8 tan (about 54 koku) to Ichie and about 14 cho 4 tan (about 152 koku) to Tsushima as Kurumaden (an area exempt from land tax). Tsushima received 20 large-scale boats from Nagoya, Atsuta, Kanie and others. 20 bamboo offerings called imidake (circumference about 24cm, with leaves) were donated from Kanayama and Nagara in Mino with ten offerings coming from each. 500 bamboo poles with lanterns were donated from Nishi-Kawabata, Kusahira and Fuchidaka and others as well as 80 oars from Kanayama.

☆ The stage for Tsushima Tenno Matsuri: Tenno River (Tsushima River)
The stage for Tenno Matsuri is currently the round pond called Maruike in Tennogawa Park. Tenno River (Tsushima River) was a river formed by the confluence of the Miyake River and Hagiwara River (Nikko River) in the Edo Period and further joined the Saya River and ran into Ise Bay. Tenno Bridge was suspended over the Tenno River. The great warlord Oda Nobunaga enjoyed this festival from Tenno Bridge in the Sengoku Period. The place where Tsushima Tennosha Shrine was located was called Mukojima and a shrine estate (shuinchi) of Tsushima Tennosha Shrine in the Edo Period.
