Masaoka and Tsuruchiyo 政岡と鶴喜代

quote
Meiboku Sendaihagi 伽羅先代萩 "The Disputed Succession"
This is based on the troubles in the Date family of the Sendai clan in the Edo period. It tells the story of Nikki Danjo, the regent for the Ashikaga family in Oshu, who conspires with his younger sister Yashio to take over the Ashikaga family.
The main scenes performed today are: the one commonly called 'Goten,' in which the wet nurse Masaoka protects her young lord Tsuruchiyo from a party of villains by sacrificing her own son; commonly called 'Yukashita' in which Arajishi Otokonosuke who was on guard under the floor of the goten (palace) is overcome by Nikki Danjo's rat magic, then Nikki Danjo calmly escapes; and commonly called 'Taiketsu' and 'Ninjo' in which Nikki Danjo loses his legal case due to the judgment by Hosokawa Katsumoto, and resists but is executed.



Masaoka is the leading role in the 'Goten' scene, and is considered one of the important goten jochu (high-ranking lady-in-waiting in a palace) roles called Katahazushi. Nikki Danjo's role is famous as that of a major villain type called Kunikuzushi (person attempting to take over the country) and shows how fascinating a villain can be.

MINGEI - Tanao clay dolls Aichi


[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
. Aichi Folk Art - 愛知県  - Introduction .
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Tanao ningyoo 棚尾人形 Dolls from Tanao
Tanao was elevated to town status on January 1, 1924.
After World War II, Ohama Shinkawa and Tanao towns merged to form the city of 碧南市 Hekinan on April 5, 1948.

Clay dolls were made in many parts of the 三河地方 Mikawa region.
The general name is 三河人形 Mikawa Ningyo and each hamlet added its own name, like Tanao.
In the Edo period, many villages had their own theater group and Kabuki plays were performed. Many theater heroes turned into clay dolls.

..............................................................................................................................................

In Tanao lived more than 10 doll makers, including 鈴木市太郎 Suzuki Ichitaro. But by 1960, most of them had gone out of business.
The last was 鈴木 初太郎 Suzuki Hatsutaro, who died in 1961.

Takechi Juujiroo, Jûjirô 武智十次郎 Takechi Jujiro


made by 岡本開太郎 Okamoto Kaitaro

After a novel turned Kabuki, 絵本太功記 Ehon Taikoki
with 武智光秀(たけち みつひで) Takechi Mitsuhide (Akechi Mitsuhide)
and his son
武智十次郎(たけち じゅうじろう) Takechi Jujiro

- quote -
Ehon Taikôki
The play "Ehon Taikôki" was originally written for the puppet theater (Bunraku) and staged for the first time in the 7th lunar month of 1799 in Ôsaka at the Toyotakeza. It was adapted for Kabuki the next year and staged for the first time in the 11th lunar month of 1800 in Ôsaka at the Kado no Shibai [casting]. Because of strict censorship, the authors had to change the names of the characters:
Real name --- Role
Akechi Mitsuhide --- Takechi Mitsuhide
Oda Nobunaga --- Oda Harunaga
Hashiba Hideyoshi (later Toyotomi Hideyoshi) --- Mashiba Hisayoshi
Katô Kiyomasa --- Satô Masakiyo

"The play consisted originally of thirteen acts, one act for each day that passed between Akechi Mitsuhide's murder of Oda Nobunaga and his death at the hand of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The tenth act is the only one which has survived. This act tells of an incident during the battle in which Mitsuhide was finally defeated. When Akechi Mitsuhide determined to murder Oda Nobunaga, he laid his plans carefully. He chose a time when Nobunaga was in Kyôto with a bodyguard of not more than two hundred men, while his other forces were dispersed far from the capital. In particular, the two men Mitsuhide knew to be most likely to thwart his plans were, he trusted, in no position to resist him.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi was away, laying siege to the castle of Takamatsu in Bicchû, the last stronghold of Nobunaga's enemy Mori Motonari. Ieyasu was awaiting Nobunaga at Sakai with a small contingent. Mitsuhide arranged for Sakai to be surrounded at the same time as he made his own coup. Ieyasu escaped capture through the friendly warning of a local tea-grower. Mitsuhide had, however, underestimated Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Having brought Takamatsu Castle to its last gasp, Toyotomi Hideyoshi was able to conclude a speedy truce with Mori. He hurried back to Kyôto by forced marches, surprised Mitsuhide at Yamazaki, and defeated him. Legend has it that Toyotomi Hideyoshi killed Mitsuhide with his own hand, but, in fact, he was cut down by a peasant as he fled from the field."
(Aubrey and Giovanna Halford in "The Kabuki Handbook")

Princess Neiwannyo 寧王女(ねいわんにょ)

- - - - - Neiwannyo (寧王女 )
Chinsetsu yumi harizuki 椿説弓張月 Tametomo The Archer General 源為朝
Novel by Takizawa Bakin, turned into a Kabuki play



Iwai Shijaku I as Princess Neiwannyo of the Ryûkyû Kingdom
初代岩井紫若の琉球国ノねいわん女
by 春江斎北英画 Shunbaisai Hokuei
source : mfa.org/collections/object...

Shimameguri Tsuki no Yumihari [嶋巡月弓張]
"According to historical accounts, Chinzei Hachirō Tametomo, a renowned archer and warrior of the Genji clan, was born to a courtesan in 1139. By the age of fifteen he was already seven feet tall and had conquered half the castles in Kyūshū. While battling the Heike general, Kiyomori, he was captured and exiled to Ōshima, a group of islands that he subdued and set about ruling. An army was sent from the mainland to quell him once and for all, the continuation of the tale by Takizawa Bakin, escaped from Ōshima the Isles of Women. Later shipwrecked, he was cast ashore in Okinawa where he defended the princess of the island against usurpers, married her, brought peace, and produced a son who became king.
In the present print, the castaway Tametomo has just arrived on the shore of Okinawa and is sighted by the princess of the island, Neiwanjo, who rides toward him on a water buffalo."

- - - - - Osaka Prints said of this diptych:
"The Tametomo depicted in Hokuei's print is based on an epic tale written by Takizawa Bakin (1767-1848). It was published in fiction-book format in 29 volumes from 1807-11 under the title "Strange Tales of the Crescent Moon" (Chinsetsu yumihari zuki). In this version, Tametomo finds refuge in the Ryûkyû Islands. When Tametomo shipwrecks at Okinawa in the Ryûkyû archipelago, he defends Princess Neiwanjo against a minister plotting to take over her throne. He then marries her and fathers a son who becomes the first in a lineage of Okinawan kings, the ancestors of Ashikaga Takaiji (1305-58), who established the Ashikaga shogunate, reigning from 1336 to 1568. Tragedy strikes, however, when Neiwanjo dies. Tametomo then follows her to heaven, leaving their son to rule."
Later they added:
"Hokuei's diptych depicts the first meeting between Tametomo and Neiwanjo. The princess rides upon a water buffalo as she approaches Tametomo on the Okinawan shore. Seated on a rock, the warrior holds his battle fan (gunsen), grips his sheathed sword (katana), and raises one leg in a posture of readiness. The figures are isolated against an unusually conceived seascape, with a gently rolling sea, ruler-straight horizon line, and repeated groupings of stylized cloud plumes. The latter show the influence of Occidental art and, in particular, the works of Katsushika Hokusai, for a brief time the teacher of Hokuei's master, Shunkōsai Hokushū."
