神的使者:長刀鉾稚兒

Messenger of God: Nagato Hokage

Zhier means children. In the Gion Festival, it refers to some special children. Xiaobian saw on the Japanese website that someone asked if the child was a sacrifice to the gods? This is not right, this little boy will be the representative of the gods. In the past, many Yamahokos had real children, but now only Nagatohoko has real children, so it has become a major feature of Nagatohoko.

Every June, a ten-year-old child is chosen as Nagato Hoko and two of his little followers. On 7/13, this child will ride a white horse, accompanied by the relevant personnel of Nagato Hoko and a large number of people, and will go to Yasaka Shrine via Shijo-dori to visit the shrine and receive the throne of God. His rank is equivalent to five major generals and one hundred thousand stone. A daimyo (an entrepreneur with about 2 to 3,000 employees and a capital of 300 million yen now, it's really a rich man's activity...), became a messenger of the gods, and boarded a long sword while traveling on the mountain hoko. Cast at the forefront of the parade, leading everyone to destroy evil and show righteousness. After the ceremony of accepting the throne, Nagato Hokage will go to the Nakamura Building of the Nigenchaya in the Yasaka Shrine to eat the baby cake, which is also open to the general public from 7/14 to 7/31.

During the period of obtaining the throne, the child cannot touch the ground in public, and needs to be carried on the shoulders of a man. This man is called a strong "Gouriki", and the person who takes care of the child must be a man. It is also made by men, not even mothers.



Nagatohoko's children are all selected from wealthy and prestigious families. One of the reasons is that it takes a lot of money to hold this position. The whole Gion Festival, Longtohoko's children cost about 20 million yen, so each The child's parents are both the company's president and other figures. This year's child, his father is the big boss of the kimono business. The children of all ages and their family business will be recorded in history.

In fact, in addition to Nagato Hoko, there are other young children at the Gion Festival, such as Ayasha Hoko's child and Ma Nagato, who is on a tour of Hanagasa. They also visit Yasaka Shrine. However, none of these children were riding on the Yamahoko, and this year because of the suspension of the Hanagasa parade, there seemed to be no Ma Changzhi. In the Gion Festival, the most representative is the long sword Hokage.
