黄金周 开始了,到 NIC 去看看最近这附近有什么活动。。
但,无奈,都有一点远。。而老公的黄金周也没假期,所以上网看看好了。。:)

看到这个。。我有点不解。。一开始不是很懂到底是怎么一回事。。


Event : Tado Matsuri (Festival) 多度祭 / Ageuma Shinji 上げ馬神事
When : May 4 & 5
Where : Tado Shrine

The main event for this ancient festival is a horse jumping event,
which draws large crowds each year & much unwanted attention from animal rights organizations.

The focus of the festival is the age-uma-shinji ceremony. The horses are ridden by young males around the ages of 17–19 representing the six sections of the city. The horses run up a hill before trying to jump over a two-meter high wall, which always causing many riders and horses to get badly injured.

On the first day, each area’s representative jumps over the wall twice for a total of 12 jumps.
On the second day, each representative only makes one attempt for a total of six jumps.
Other events follow the horse jumping on the second day, including yabusame, a form of archery.

This event was named one of Mie Prefecture’s Designated Intangible Cultural Properties in 1978.(三重県の無形民俗文化財产)

Quote from Wiki & NIC

不知道为什么要跳过那2m的墙。。想象不到。。所以上 Youtube 找了一下。。
原来。。是这样的。。

这 Video 里的,都还是成功的例子。。
虽然都是成功的。。但有看到吗?当中有一匹马“跨”在那墙上的时候。。
哇。。我都好像感觉到痛了。。哈哈。。

无奈。。这就是他们的传统,他们的文化。
