Do you know traditional Japanese masks which appear on Dashi (Japanese wooden floats) while you can hear Hayashi (musical accompaniment for traditional Japanese dance)?
🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
They are:
Kitsune (fox)
Shishi-mai (lion)
Hyottoko is a silly, childlike figure with a comical expression on his face. His mouth is almost always rounded and skewed to one side.
Okame, also known as otafuku, is like the female version of Hyottoko, and their masks usually appear together. She is portrayed as a woman with a large, oval-shaped head and smiling eyes.

We visited JRA Racing Museum in Fuchu and learned a lot about the horse-racing world!🤓🧐
There is much information about the history of racing in Japan, which has become one of the best in the world, shown in a very interesting and interactive way!🤩🤩🤩
We recommend you to see the “Hall of Fame” of horses and horsemen (the gallery on the 1st floor) which have made exceptional contribution to the development of JRA racing!👍👍👍👍
There are interactive things for families with kids to enjoy together, e.g. you can pretend to be the person starting the race by waving the red flag and then triggering the real starting gates for life-size model horses.
This Sunday, May 19, Tokyo Racecourse (JRA) located in Fuchu right next to the museum, showcases Japan’s top 3-year-old fillies with the 80th running of the Grade 1 Yushun Himba (commonly referred as the Japanese Oaks).
Come and visit the museum, Tokyo Racecourse, the park and playgrounds all in one place!😍😍😍
It’s worth it!

Dashi are beautifully decorated wooden floats.
There are 22 dashi in Fuchu.
In 2019 dashi will be displayed in Fuchu two more times:
27/28 September - Kuri Festival
20 October - Citizens Parade

Hayashi is musical accompaniment for traditional Japanese dance.
Fuchu has two schools of hayashi:
1. Meguro (full of lively tone)
2. Funabashi (full of elegant tone)

Did you notice the difference???🤔🧐🤓
If not, watch it again please!🤗🤗🤗

Hailstorm in Fuchu City!😱😱😱
All of us participating at the Kurayami Festival this year were speechless after a strong hailstorm swept through the center of the city on May 4.😮😮😮
It started around 3pm, right after we announced the winners of this year’s Manto (paper-decorated poles) Taikai - lantern-themed flower performance!
Around 5pm the festival was back on the streets around Okunitama-jinja Shrine again!

We went to Mt. Sengenyama to see the beautiful rare wild flower called Musashinokisuge daylily.
This weekend (May 11th&12th, 10am-4pm) there will be the Kisuge Festival held at the Sengenyama Park in the spot tagged in the last photo.
Besides Musashinokisuge daylily, you can see some other special flowers: Kinran and Ginran too!🤩🤩🤩
So go and wander through the greenery, watch plants and small creatures in the woods! But first and foremost, enjoy your weekend!🤗🤗🤗
