Product Description

Feudal Lords Procession

During the Edo era (1603-1868), Daimyo or feudal lords made trips regularly between their feudal domains and Edo (present-day Tokyo), which was where the Tokugawa Shogunate was based.  These lords were obliged to live in Edo and also their own domains each for a year to show their loyalty to the Shogunate.

Every year, a number of ‘Daimyo Gyoretsu’ festivals take place countrywide in homage to the bi-annual pilgrimages where feudal lords were obliged by the Shogun to make trips back and forth between their domains and the country’s capital. The most colourful of processions, based in the hot spring town of Hakone, sees 170 inhabitants, dressed in the flamboyant finery of yesteryear, parading over 6km around the famous onsen town in the shadow of Mount Fuji.

This colourful and lively procession is one of the nation’s favourite. It sees its participants dressed as Samurai, their attendants, Geisha and equipment bearers marching to the beat of a drum. The Samurai retainers, armed with spears, bow and arrows, or guns, march through the streets of the town as they carry their lord in the palanquin to the words, 'Down! Down! The Lord comes!' which is shouted out loud.
