English Yamabushi-yama
The name "Yamabushi," a mountain ascetic, comes from the outfit worn by the deity that is carried on the yama. Among the 23 floats in Saki-no-Matsuri, the first part of the parade, this yama comes from the northernmost town. Like En-no-Gyoja Yama, Yamabushi Yama was inspired by the popular folk belief of the time in yamabushi and their practice of Shugendo, an ancient shamanistic religion. The front grand drape was brought from China, and gorgeously depicts a dragon in the clouds, big blue waves and a kylin, a deer-like mythical creature, in exquisite embroidery. The main tapestry at the back is also said to have been made in China during the Ming dynasty. The mountain ascetics from Shogoin Temple visit this yama to worship the deity on July 15.
