Gion matsuri 2020: Atomatsuri Yoiyama

Takayama 鷹山

鷹山

鷹山の御朱印

In Edo period, a Typhoon dameged Takayama and forced out it of Yamaboko parade. After that, it caught by fire. Only left to Takayama are three Goshintai and a dog figurine.

A figurine with a bird, is Arihara no Narihira, a famous poet and court noble in the 9th century. A figurine in the center has a Chimaki in his hands. They are movable and it pretends to eat it. Due to this gimmick, Takayama sells Chimaki to eat. The right figurine is Inutsukai.
