下鴨神社 歩射神事 屋越の蟇目
葵祭の前儀として、蟇目矢を射て勅使のお通りになる楼門を祓うものです
2枚目の写真、楼門を越えていく矢が見えるでしょうか
‘Yagoshi-no-hikime’ is a type of ‘hikime-no-gi’ in which an arrow is shot over a roof to drive off evil spirits. It’s held at Shimogamo Shrine on annual May 5th to purify the place where the Aoi Matsuri procession passes through. Do you see the arrow going over the ‘romon’ (two-storied gate) in the second picture?
