茶町踊り ・ Chamachi Dance

2015.08.05 (Wed)

茶町踊り

Though lost for a time, the chamachi dance was revived by the Chamachi Preservation Association, formed in 1967. The dance flourished and has been passed down to become the Hashizu area’s Bon dance. Along with the accompanying Chamachi Dance Song, the chamachi dance has been designated as one of Japan’s intangible folk cultural assets.

 

この茶町踊りはしばらく途絶えていましたが、1967(昭和42)年に「茶町おどり保存会」が結成されて復活し、橋津地区の盆踊りとして現在も盛大に踊り継がれています。「茶町踊り唄」とともに町の無形民俗文化財に指定されています。
