説明  山には屋根がないのが普通だが、この山は日覆障子を乗せている。金地彩色法相華文の板絵として他の山にない古い形式を残している。名前の由来は、中国の史話にある貧しくて母と子を養えない郭巨が、思い余って子を山に捨てようしたとき、土の中から金の釜が現れ、母に孝養を尽くした話による。人形は、鍬を持つ郭巨と紅白の牡丹の花を持つ童子の2体。

English Kakkyo-yama
While yama floats are usually roofless, this one has a sunshade screen on the top. Another unique point of this yama is that it maintains the traditional style of a decorative upper frame for the body. The board frame is beautifully painted with a colorful flower-like motif on a gold background. The name "Kakkyo" comes from a man in a historical Chinese story. Guo Ju ("Kakkyo" in Japanese) was too poor to feed both his mother and son. Cornered, Guo made the tough decision to abandon his son in the woods to save his mother. However, when he was digging to bury his son alive, he found a pot of gold in the ground, and did his utmost to practice filial piety from then on. Two dolls are on the float: Guo Ju with a plow and his son with red and white peonies. The design of the rear tapestry, which was renewed in 1991, is based on a folding screen from the Momoyama period (late 16th century).
