The outburst of events
What became the prototype of the throwing festival is the casting (Touko), China is the empowerment of the imperial court of the Han era.I entered the Nara period in Japan.Although it was forgotten for a long time, it was rebuilt once in the Edo period, but because the rules are quite difficult and stiff, it is also easier to arrange in Japanese style in the Edo period, easy for women kids, everyone who has drunk When it was invented in Kyoto that can be done, this became very popular, and it came to be actively performed in the seat of a spree.
The idea of ​​throwing embellishment seems to be due to the butterfly stopping on a wooden pillow and stopping it by throwing a fan and staying in a good condition on the pillow.This is expressed in the shape of the throwing-in-and-out tool as it is.I get inspired from such a casual sight of such everyday, sublime it as a substitute for playing as a casting pot and still be popular among people, expressing the freedom and openness of the pop culture of the Edo period indeed An example.
In Asakusa, it is also actively being carried out in Hanayashiba's Odaibashi etc., and the thing that did this in Senso-ji Temple's premises was a prohibition from the Edo shogunate as to whether it was surprising enough There is also.

Rule of throwing
In a nutshell, I just throw a fan, but it is not a thing to just throw and drop a butterfly shape, but the score is determined by the type of positional relationship between a fan and a butterfly.Of course, those with a high degree of difficulty of reproduction will be high scores.There is an inscription on the type, and it has the name of 54 volumes of the Genji Monogatari.
There seems to be a trick in various ways of throwing a fan, it is useless to put too much power.A penalty can be taken if you hit the pillow or knock it down.Reading the wind and manipulating the fans elegantly is a master.
Although it is very simple, it is up to the person to sense impermanence and elegance there.It seems to be a fun game that's pretty crazy.
