Trained monkeys show 伝統芸能ですが

標準

The other day, I visited Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrinewhere bright red azalea flowers were at their best.  Since it was in the middle of the early-May holiday season in Japan, I found so many visitors to the shrine.  And to my surprise, I also found a monkey trick show!  I was impressed with it and thought it was one of the Japanese traditional performing entertainment shows.

I am afraid this performing art of long tradition must be condemned by international animal welfare organizations, though.

先日ゴールデンウィーク中のある日、躑躅満開の長岡天満宮にお詣りしたら、大勢の参拝客はもちろんいましたが、何と、猿回しがきていました。

これも日本の伝統芸能の一つだなとしみじみと見入りましたが、国際的な動物愛護団体から文句が来るんだろうなあ、とも思いました。

yushokai について

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
