Celebrating the First: Events and Customs in Edo Period
There are many rituals and customs in the lives of the Japanese people that mark or celebrate a beginning: the ritual first shrine visit (hatsumōde) of a new year, the first calligraphy exercise of the new year (kakizome), weaning ceremonies (okuizome), the hatsuuma harvest festival held on the first day of the horse in February, and so on.
During the Edo Period, other such events marking beginnings that are no longer performed also took place, such as those held by the shogunate (bakufu) and at the Imperial Court like the recitation of a Nō song performed to mark the new year (utaizome).
Held to mark the first start of the calendar year during the new Reiwa era, this exhibition presents Edo Period materials related to marking beginnings.
