Hachinohe-city Celebration of Three Shrines/Праздник трех алтарей в городе Хатинохе

Hachinohe Festival of Three Shrines (八戸三社大祭) happens at the same time as other nebuta festivals in Aomori Prefecture (August 2-7), even though the floats are not made of paper. The festival originated in Hachinohe-city almost three hundred years ago, when monks needed to move three portable shrines from one place to the other. They also decided to do it with a bang and thus came the event that nowadays attracts people from all over Aomori.

Праздник трех алтарей в городе Хатинохе проходит в те же дни, что и другие фестивали небута в провинции Аомори (2-7 августа), хотя и праздничные композиции выполнены несколько в другом стиле. Праздник появился примерно триста лет назад, когда монахам понадобилось перенести три алтаря из одного места в другое. В Японии празднику всегда есть место, поэтому монахи не стали отступать от традиций, и превратили ежегодное событие в праздник, который прижился и теперь ежегодно привлекает множество людей из провинции Аомори и других районов Японии.

















Everything is as usual: lots of people, delicious street food, but everything is organized and calm.

Все как обычно: толпа народу, вдоль улиц можно вкусно покушать, но все организовано, вежливо и спокойно.




Most of the floats symbolize folk scenes. This one below, however, depicts characters from a cartoon that teaches kids to be polite.

Большинство экспонатов украшены композициями из древних сказаний и народных историй. Но бывают и исключения. Вот эти герои, например, взяты из мультфильма, который учит детей вежливости.







Hachinohe-city is a welcoming host for the celebration.

Город Хатинохе принимает праздник

If you do decide to go to this holiday, the easiest way to get there from Hachinohe train station is to take the local train to Hon-Hachinohe (本八戸) station, where the celebration is actually taking place.

Если вы когда-нибудь поедете в Хатинохе на этот праздник, то знайте что он проходит возле станции Хон-Хатинохе (本八戸), до которой можно добраться поездом от станции Хатинохе.
