1月も半ばを過ぎ、お正月気分も去って日常に戻った方がほとんどだと思いますが、毎年1月19日は多賀大社前絵馬通りに伊勢から獅子舞がやってきます。伊勢大神楽 山本長太夫一座です。明日は日曜日でお天気も良いようですから、獅子舞を間近で見たことがない方は是非多賀大社前の絵馬通りへいらしてください。うちへ回ってくるのはたいてい午後です。獅子舞が家の中に入ってきて舞を舞った後、お獅子に頭を噛んでもらいます。これはお獅子に私たちに付いた邪気を食べてもらうためだそうです。カフェにいらっしゃるお客様にもお獅子が頭を噛んでくれますので、この体験がしたい方はどうぞいらしてください。何とも言えないお正月らしいひとときが楽しめますよ。It's already middle of January and I guess most people have gone back to their daily routine. However, Jan.19th is a special day on which a troupe of Shishi-kagura comes to our town from Ise in Mie prefecture. According to the weather forecast, it will be a fine day on Sunday (1/19), so if you haven't seen Shishi-mai (lion dance) before, it will be a good chance to see it right in front of you. Usually the troupe comes in the afternoon and Shishi comes into a house to perform a dance with flute and bell, then the Shishi (lion) bites our heads for removing evil from our bodies. If you would like the experience to be bitten by Shishi, come to my cafe. I am sure you will enjoy the time of festive mood.
