祇園祭 山鉾紹介


巡行の順番 後祭 3   (2019年)
住所 京都市中京区室町通六角下ル鯉山町
説明  前掛けや見送りは16世紀のベルギー製のタペストリーで、重要文化財に指定されている。ギリシャの叙事詩に題材をとって人物や風景が描かれており、山鉾きっての貴重なものだ。人物でなく、魚をテーマにするのは山のなかで唯一。竜門の滝をのぼる鯉は竜になるとの言い伝えで、木製の鯉が勢い良く水しぶきを上げる様は勇壮。
山建て 19日午前9時~
English Koi-yama
In 1992, the Koiyama Hozonkai renewed the yama's front tapestry, Maekake, for the first time in about 400 years. A reproduction of the rear tapestry, Miokuri, was made the previous year. Both are 16th century Belgian-woven tapestries, which depict characters and scenes from Greek epics. These tapestries are designated as one of the Important Cultural Property in Japan, and these are the most precious ones of all the floats. The Koiyama float is the only one that features fish instead of people from the legend that a carp will become a dragon if it successfully runs up the Ryumon (dragon gateway) waterfall. The yama float has a vividly curbed wooden carp that looks as if it energetically splashes water.
