What is Yoiyama? 宵山とは

2018宵山

Yoiyama means a kind of small festivals held a few days before in Hokomachi.

Hokomachi is a district where we can find Yamaboko floats. As seen in the photo above, there are many paper lanterns hanging on Yamaboko floats.

Yoiyama is preparation for Mikoshi and Yamaboko parade. It still reminds secret when it started but Gion Groyo-e Saiki, a book on Gion Goryo-e (the former name of Gion matsuri.), tells us it began in the 18th century.

Today, the word Yoiyama has two meanings; The three consecutive days before Yamaboko parade, and the eve of the parade.

 いちきしま ひめ
 いちきしま ひめ

In Saki Matsuri, Yamahoko parade is on 17th. We call 16th Yoiyama, 15th Yoiyoiyama, and 14th Yoiyoiyoiyama precisely.

In this article, we call the nights of 14~16th Yoiyama.

祇園祭駒形提灯八幡山

In Yoiyama, we can see paper lanterns hanging on Yamaboko floats, enjoy Ohayashi music, and have Chimaki amulet and Goshuin stamps at Kaisyo, a kind of head office of Yamaboko floats. At many Kaisho, we can enjoy ornaments of Yamahoko. It is called “Kaisyo Kazari.” Most of them are put on Yamaboko floats on the very day of Yamaboko parade.

When would we go the Yoiyama?

In daytime or night

If you wanted Chimaki, Goshuin stamp, and other things at Kaisyo, it would be better go there in daytime though Yoi of Yoiyama means “night.” At night, many people visited Kaisyo and it might take time to have these things.

At twilight

We have two matsrui in Gion matsuri; Saki matsruri and Ato matsuri. In Ato matsuri, the twilight reminds of us autumn though we are in the midst of summer.

Car-free zone?

In Ato matsuri, we have car-free zones only around Yamaboko floats. And we don’t have one-way roads.
