Etchu Yatsuo Owara Kaze-no-Bon
One of Toyama Prefecture’s best-known traditional folk events, with a history dating back around 300 years. It is held for the three days starting from September 1 each year. The dancers wear woven straw hats pulled low down over their faces and process through streets lined with thousands of paper lanterns in time to the Owara Bushi, a folk song performed by the jikata, a group of singers and musicians playing traditional court instruments, shamisen, taiko drums, and traditional stringed instrument called kokyu.
Obverse: Male and Female dancers processing through the night-time streets of the old townscape of Yatsuo in an elegant, refined dance, subtly depicted in the rich color palette of eight-color cloisonné.
Reverse: The Jikata, the group of singers and instrumentalists that plays an essential role in the Owara.
Obverse: Cloisonné enamel
