English Hosho-yama
The old name for this yama float is "Hana-Nusubito Yama", or the flower thief's yama. The figure on the yama represents Hirai Hosho (956-1036), grandson of Chief Councilor of State Fujiwara Motokata and son of Fujiwara Munekata. He was both a good warrior and a good poet. One day, in order to please a court lady he had fallen in love with, he went to get a branch of plum blossoms from the Imperial garden. Although he successfully took one, a palace guard noticed him. With arrows being shot at his head, he narrowly escaped from the palace. The lady was Izumi Shikibu, a famous poet in the court of that age who later became his wife. Amulets against theft and for happy marriage are given away at this yama.
