住所 京都市中京区六角通烏丸西入骨屋町
説明  橋弁慶山に似て、アクロバティックな人形の姿が人目を引く。宇治橋の上、宇治川の合戦。一来法師が三井寺の僧兵・浄妙の頭上を飛び越して先陣をとった故事にちなむ。揺れる山の上で人形の上にさらに1体を乗せるのは強度の点で難しいが、1本の木で上下を繋ぐアイデアは素晴らしい。上下の人形を、上さま、下さまと呼ぶのもゆかしい。浄妙のよろいは室町時代のもので、重要文化財。
山建て 20日午前8時半~
English Jomyo-yama
The Jyomyou Yama catches the eye with its acrobatic figures. The yama depicts a historic event when a monk warrior, Ichirai Hoshi, leaped over a monk warrior of the Miidera Temple, Jyomyou, on the Uji Bridge to lead the vanguard at the Uji River Battle. Although it's difficult to maintain the strength to have one figure fixed on the other on the bumpy floats, this one skillfully solves the problem by connecting the upper and lower figures with a wooden support. People endearingly address the upper and lower figures as "Uesama" and "Simosama" respectively. The body armor of Jyomyou, which was made in the Muromachi era (between the 14th to 16th centuries), is designated as one of the Important Cultural Property of Japan.
