2017年(平成29年)6月14は大阪府大阪市住吉区の住吉大社「御田植神事」の撮影に伺いました。

住吉大社といえば大阪で最も人出がある初詣先で、全国的にみてもトップ10に入る人気です。

私は午前7時30分頃に到着し、社務所にご挨拶をしてから神館に入りました。
神館では粉黛・戴盃式参加するを植女、稚児、御稔女が準備のため集まっていました。

本殿祭では早苗を植女に手渡し、大田主に御神水が渡されます。その後、風流武者による武者行事の奉納が行われました。


祭儀の後、行列は神田に向かいました。

神田に入ってきた行列は周囲を一周した後、神田での祭儀が始まりました。

Otaue (= Rice planting) Shinto Ritual in Sumiyoshi-taisha shrine

I had visited to Sumiyoshi-taisha in Osaka-City Sumiyoshi Ward to shoot the Otaue (= Rice planting) Shinto Ritual as an Important Intangible Folk Cultural Asset at 14 June 2017.
There is located about 5 minutes’ walk from Sumiyoshi-taisha station of Nankai train.
Sumiyoshi-taisha shrine has been most popular to people and called "Ichinomiya of Settsu". They say "Settsu" in ancient that is the old country which accounts for north-west of Osaka Prefecture and southeastern of Hyogo Prefecture.
Sumiyoshi-taisha shrine is a popular of the top 10 of the New Year's visit to a shrine of Japan.

I arrived around 7:30sm, and went to Shin-kan hall from the greeting to the shrine office.

In Shin-kan hall, "Chigo", "Ueme" and "Mitoshime" they had come together for get the participation qualification of today's ritual service at 10:30am.
"Chigo", "Ueme", "Mitoshime" are name of children and women for role of the festival.

"Yakko", "Furyumusha" and the others went to the main shrine festival from the Shin-kan hall at 1:00pm.

In this ritual, the Shinto priest passed to the rice sprouts to "Ueme"(=Rice planting lady). And "Furyumusha" (=Samurai) was dancing the ritual dance.
After all, they went to "Shinden" (= Rice field of Shinto God) .

After they came to around the perimeter of the "Shinden", Matrix began the ritual.

After several ritual was held, it became the order of the Sumiyoshi dance I also went to the road surrounding the "Shinden" (= Rice fields) together to shoot.

I thank you for everyone of this festival.
