EDO floating world book

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




Aesthetic Strategies of The Floating World: Mitate, Yatsushi, and Fūryū in Early Modern Japanese Popular Culture
Alfred Haft (Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures)
Japan's classical tradition underpinned almost every area of cultural production throughout the early modern or Edo period (1615–1868). This book offers the first in-depth account of three aesthetic strategies—unexpected juxtaposition (mitate), casual adaptation (yatsushi) and modern standards of style (fūryū)—that shaped the way Edo popular culture and particularly the Floating World absorbed and responded to this force of cultural authority. Combining visual, documentary and literary evidence, Alfred Haft here explores why the three strategies were central to the life of the Floating World, how they expanded the conceptual range of the popular woodblock print (ukiyo-e), and what they reveal about the role of humor in the Floating World's relationship with established society. Through a critical analysis of prints by major artists such as Harunobu, Koryūsai, Utamaro, Eishi and Hiroshige, Aesthetic Strategies of the Floating World shows how the strategies made ukiyo-e not merely the by-product of a demimonde, but an agent in the social and cultural politics of their time.

ONI - Kesen no Oni Iwate

https://kappapedia.blogspot.jp/2017/09/oni-no-karada-body-features.html

.
................................................................................. Iwate 岩手県
気仙郡 Kesen district

When Sakanoue no Tamuramaro drove out the demon of this region, the teeth of this Oni were left over.
The boss of the native 蝦夷 Emishi group was called 赤頭 Akagashira.


赤頭 Head of Akagashira

and his oni no kiba 鬼の牙 demon teeth


Tamuramaro built a grave for Akagashira and offered a statue of Kannon Bosatsu to appease his soul. This is now at the temple 竜福山・長谷寺 Hasedera.
When they dug out the grave in 1704, they found 33 teeth in the skull of this Akagashira Oni.
ケセンの鬼の国 Kesen is the land of the Oni.

その昔、赤頭(あかがしら)と呼ばれた蝦夷の首領が気仙郡佐狩郷赤崎小田の地にいて、鎮守府将軍の坂上田村麻呂と一戦を交えた。
その首を埋めた墓上に田村麻呂はお墓を建て十一面観世音菩薩を安置したのが、現在の猪川町である。
竜福山・長谷寺(創建八〇七年)と伝わる。
鬼の歯それから九百年が経った宝永元年(一七〇四)に、寛応法印が寺内から発掘したという赤頭の歯、三十三枚が寺宝として現存している。鬼の牙といわれている。

Nekomata – The Split-Tailed Cat

by Zack Davisson



Kamakura Period –
The Nekomata of the Mountains

Most Japanese yokai were born during the Edo period, but the nekomata has more ancient roots. Mention of the nekomata first appeared during the Kamakura period (1185-1333), where it was mentioned in the literary jottings of Yoshida Kenko in his scroll Tsurezure-gusa (徒然草; The Harvest of Leisure, also known as Essays in Idleness). Yoshida wrote "Deep in the mountains there is a creature called the nekomata. It is said that it feeds on humans." At around the same period, Fujiwara Sadaie recorded in the scroll Meigetsuki (明月記; The Record of the Clear Moon, sometimes called Diary of the Clear Moon) that on August 8th in the first year of Tenpuku (1233) in Nanto (modern day Nara prefecture) a nekomata from the mountains killed and ate several people.

Yanaka 谷中 Yanaka district

根岸谷中辺絵図 Negishi Yanaka Map

Yanaka (谷中) is one of the few districts in Tokyo where the shitamachi atmosphere, an old town ambience reminiscent of Tokyo from past decades, still survives. Throughout the district, there is an air of nostalgia and a rustic charm. It is within walking distance of Ueno Park, and offers a sightseeing opportunity different from the metropolitan city feel of other parts of Tokyo.
A short walk from either Nippori Station or Sendagi Subway Station will take you to Yanaka Ginza, a shopping street which best represents the shitamachi flavor of the Yanaka District. Here, there are shops selling goods and produce, ranging from groceries and necessities to clothes and toys.
...
Another attraction of Yanaka is the Yanaka Cemetery, where the locals lay to rest in loving memory those who have passed away. Many of the tombs are elaborately decorated and nicely landscaped. Paths are well-kept and wide, presenting a good trail for a tranquil stroll. The grave of Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the last shogun of the Edo Period, is also situated within the cemetery.
The Sakura-dori Street, which runs through the center of the cemetery, is lined by cherry trees and attracts many visitors every year during the cherry blossom season. Yanaka Cemetery used to be part of Tennoji Temple, but was separated from it during the Meiji Period. The temple has a peaceful decor and atmosphere, and a big bronze Buddha statue sits on the left of its main building.

The craftsman 大崎忠右衛門 Osaki Chuemon had come from Iwami to Bingo (now Hiroshima) in the late Edo period (1854) and started to make clay dolls.
丸本儀十郎 Marumoto Gijuro married his granddaughter and kept the tradition alive. His descendant,
丸本たかし Marumoto Takashi now makes clay dolls.

These dolls are also called "shining dolls", because they have a special glazing which makes them so bright.

- quote -
Miyoshi dolls, also known as Miyoshi-deko (clay figure), have a peculiar gloss all over them, especially on their faces. So some call them hikari-ningyo, or shiny dolls. They are simple but have a hint of beauty, too.
In the past the deko-ichi or clay figure fair, a harbinger of spring, was held in Miyoshi. From mid-March, a large number of clay figures were displayed for
sale at shops on Miyoshi Hondori Avenue. They say it drew many people from the suburbs, too. Unfortunately the fair is no longer held.
Legend tells us that every time a child was born to one of his retainers, Nagaharu Asano, the first feudal lord of Miyoshi-han, gave a clay doll as a
present to show his blessings. Since then, there still remains the custom of presenting a clay figure of Tenjin to a boy on his first Boys' Festival, and one
of Machimusume to a girl on her first Girls' Festival.
The dolls are 10-30 centimeters tall and come in various kinds. A particularly interesting one among them is Tenjin-deko. The Miyoshi district has a longstanding custom of worshipping Tenjin, or the deified spirit of Michizane Sugawara, who is supposed to be a patron of learning. Matsuoi Tenjin is a doll of
Tenjin with a green pine tree behind his back. This design is excellent and well-known.
Formerly, clay dolls were also made in the Mihara, Joge and Shobara areas in this prefecture. Now only Miyoshi dolls keep their place in our lives.
- - - Memo
The origin of Miyoshi dolls is said to date back to 1630, when Chuemon Osaki came to Miyoshi, found some good clay in Yamaga (now Yamaga-cho, Miyoshi City) and settled there to build a kiln. Following that, in 1641, Nagaharu Asano, the founder of the Miyoshi-han (feudal clan), had clay dolls baked by Kisaburo Mori, a doll maker in Asakusa, Edo (now Tokyo). Those were said to be the first Miyoshi dolls.
Currently only one pottery shop in Tokaichi-cho, Miyoshi City makes Miyoshi dolls. The skill is handed down from father to son in the Marumoto family.

京都府 Kyoto

In the temple 小石川伝通院山内 Dentsu-In lived a person named 岱雄 Taio. One day he went out begging with the monks but did not come back. Two days later they found him fainted in the back of the dormitory. When he came back to himself, he told the following story. When he wanted to make an offering, his body suddenly became light and he took off to the sky. Then he went to 成田不動 Narita Fudo to pray, spent some time between the woods talking to some Tengu who wanted to do Sumo wrestling with him. They gave him food and kept him for seven days.
The Tengu had also told him if he wanted to come back to them, he should face East to Narita and think of Fudo Myo-O, then they would come and fetch him again and give his some presents from Narita.

天狗 Tengu

Once upon a time, 一条頼重 Ichijo Yorishige made a wish and was told to go to 鞍馬の奥 the mountain temple of Kurama. He went there, sat in the 不動堂 Fudo-Do Hall and practised Zazen. Suddenly some Tengu appeared and tried to disturb him. Finally the Head Priest came to chase them away and oh wonder - they flew of as a group of black birds.
