宇野三ツ星盆踊り

This is a traditional Obon dance held in the Uno district of Yurihama. Named the Uno Mitsuboshi Bon dance, this has been designated as an intangible folk cultural asset. According to Yurihama’s elders, this dance has been passed down since the Edo or Meiji period. Accompanied by a song based on spoken lyrical chants, it is performed each year across three days during the Bon season at Anrakuji Temple.

 

宇野地区で行われている伝統の盆踊りです。同地区の盆踊りは宇野三ツ星盆踊りといわれ、町の無形民俗文化財に指定されています。古老によると江戸時代または明治時代の初めから踊り継がれているといいます。「くどき文句(語り)」を主体にした唄で、毎年お盆の三日間、安楽寺境内で踊られています。
