雄輝先生の扇塚

猛暑の中でしたが、一年と五カ月ぶりに、四世家元雄輝先生の扇塚のある、嵐山は二尊院にお参りさせていただいてきました。

In the midst of the heat, we visited Nisonin Temple in Arashiyama where the 4th Head Master Yuki Yoshimura sensei dedicated a stone monument of a fan when he was designated as a National Treasure in 1986.

雄輝先生の古いお扇子もございますというお寺さんのお話でしたが、昔は、こちらで扇供養なども行われていたそうです。

The temple monk said that one of old fans of Yuki sensei is preserved here.

扇塚の背面に刻まれていたのが下の文章です:

「時維 昭和六十一年 雄輝家元 文部大臣より無形文化財保持者の認定を受く 御殿舞の流れを汲んで山ノ内ふくが京都麩屋町二條上ル町で山ノ内流を建てたのが弘化二年である  門弟が小ふくと成り更にその門弟のふじがその後を受けたが三代目といわないで吉村流をとなえて初代となった 本拠を大阪に移し南地の師匠となりあしべ踊の振付師として活躍して定着した その没後二代目をゆう さらに三代目を雄光がついだが 昭和三十六年六月一日逝去後 門弟雄輝が四世を襲つた 昭和三十七年五月三十日のことである 家名は代々世襲でなく芸をもって継ぐという芸道最高の理念によって継承されているところに吉村流の特質を見ることが出来る

昭和四十七年三月 施主 四世家元 吉村雄輝 吉村流名取一同 賛助 門弟一同」

Translation of the sentences carved on the backside of the monument says:

“Head Master Yuki was designated as a holder of Intangible Cultural Property in 1986.

It was in 1846 that Fuku Yamanouchi started the dance school of Yamanouchi that was descended from dances that was long taught and performed in the Kyoto Imperial Palace, in Fuya-machi in Kyoto. Her disciple Kofuku succeeded as the second, then Kofuku’s disciple Fuji the next. However Fuji started the school of Yoshimura instead of calling herself the third. She moved to Osaka to be a dance teacher of maiko and geiko in the area of Nanchi and prospered as a choreographer of Ashibe Dance, a known performance by maiko and geiko of that area.

After Fuji’s death her desciple Yu inherited the second, then Yuko the third. Yuko passed away on June 1 in 1961. Yuki then inherited the fourth on May 30, 1962. It is Yoshimura school’s principle that the head masters should be inherited not by blood but by Gei or the art of dance.

March 1972

Dedicated by the 4th Head Master Yuki Yoshimura and all Natori, helped by all the disciples.”

 

暑い中、お参りに付き合ってくれて主人と。

After the visit, I am with my husband who came along in the midst of the heat.
