Nukui ShrineNukui Shrine

The Nukui Jinja shrine festival of this year will be held on 9 September (Sat) and 10 (Sun) 2017.
 The Nukui shrine is a small village shrine, but has long history. You know the Okunitama shrine near the Fuchu station, one of the biggest shrine in Japan. The Nukui shrine has close relationship with the Okunitama shrine.
The Nukui shrine is a little bit far from the campus, but within the walk distance (about 2km apart?).
I think that the Ohayashi, Japanese traditional festival music is something similar with the Indonesian music.  The Nukui Bayashi is a set of the Japanese traditional music and dances of shishi-mai (a Japanese god of Leo), foxes (a kind of god, too) and Hyottoko (Japanese funny farmers). If you have time, go and see it and feel and join it !,139.4865721,14.75z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x54baa5ffdc50132c

(Better to walk? It's about 1.5km away. Within walk distance? The map shows the way if you use the buses. You need change buses at the Higashi-Motomachi Bus stop)
(Use Keio bus and Bun-Bus, the city community bus, smaller bus. Change at the Higasi-motomachi)
