It is originally year of Chiyoda-ku "Edo world festival" this year.
However, is it with economic conditions or social conditions or new influenza?
There were various kinds and were called off by "circumstances of diversity" in a mass.

However, event of favorable reception that we continued to here is any monaittenoha
We are lonely and are not connected next. ・* * In this
Festival car doll and display of miniature shrine that we were labelled as "Chiyoda Edo festival 2009" were decided.

From Tuesday, November 4 to 8th Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00
Circle building 1F circle cube (the Tokyo station square)

One of six displayed festival car dolls has doll of "Masashige Kusunoki" of Shimonita-machi, Gunma.
It is doll which people of Shimonita obtained from Hashiba of Asakusa late in the Meiji era.
It is Master Tetsugoro Yamamoto, also known as popular name "soup stock iron" to have produced this.
In craftsmen who continued business from generation to generation in Tashiro-cho (existing 4, Sotokanda) of avenue of honor festival car doll from the cost
It was person who was famous along with "kyu*" in Kanda who made exaggerated miniature shrine later.
If I am not mistaken, we think big head office miniature shrine of Kasumori Shrine of Shimbashi to be work of "soup stock iron".

From figure which is smart and manly in clothes that Prince Masashige Kusunoki called "large Nanko" is luxurious
He/she recalls me to historical picture scroll of confusion of those north and south morning service charges in the present age.
It is produced and plays an active part in Kanda in Asakusa and be saved in festival of Shimonita carefully more
It is gone home this time after an interval of approximately 100 years to Kanda.

We are going to go to watch the skill of craftsman made with festival car of Kanda to circle cube.

From Chiyoda-ku of 1, Hirakawacho town assembly
Miniature shrine where the luxurious delicate skill of "Shigeyoshi Miyamoto" product was concentrated is displayed.

When it is now, five other festival car dolls are seen in Tokyo, too and are lost perfect gem pair.
●Yamato Takeru (good at with mountain thing)     Sakura-shi, Chiba Kamimachi
●Takeuchi follower (Takenouchi not crowded)       Izumicho, Honjo-shi, Saitama
●Yamato Takeru (good at with mountain thing)       Ishioka-shi, Ibaraki Nakamachi
●The Jinguu empress (jinguukougo)           Kamogawa-shi, Chiba Suwa scheme
●Five person of Taro Hachiman justice (hachimantarouyoshiie) Noda, Kawagoe-shi, Saitama
As things mentioned above,
Let's think about former "world festival" in circle building in November.
