A guide to how to play Dotonbori, the center of Osaka Minami

001.jpg
Dotonbori is located in the middle of Osaka Minami, a popular city in Japan. How has this town with a long history of former playhouses and teahouses evolved? Let's introduce the charm of Dotonbori while sharing the latest tourism situation of Dotonbori.

What is Dotonbori?
002.jpg
First of all, the story of Doton Yasui is indispensable when talking about the history of Dotonbori. He is a merchant who was active in the late 16th and early 17th centuries and is the creator of Dotonbori. In 1612, the excavation of the Horikawa, which connected the Higashi Yokobori River and the Nishi Yokobori River, which had become moats at the south end, to the Kizu River was started. But he died in the summer of Osaka, and the canal was completed in 1615 by his cousin, Yasuto Michito. It was named “Dotonbori” in order to pass on the achievements of Doton Yasui, who had invested enormous private property to excavate.

003.jpg
After that, Yasui Michito moved Dotonbori's promotion plan to relocate the playhouses gathered in Minamisenba to the south side of the Dotonbori River. The theaters such as Kabuki, Giutao, and the show were certified by the shogunate huts and prospered. The neighborhood was bustling and became a play town called Sakaimachi.

004.jpg
And “Namaya Goza” is a theater that represents both Japanese theater and entertainment, both in name and reality, and is surrounded by countless theater huts and theaters that serve visitors by arranging theater tickets and providing food and drink. It was lined up. It is also called “Japan's Broadway”, and Dotonbori is a long-awaited stage for entertainers aiming for first-class, and it continues to be crowded with many spectators as the center of theater and theater.

Dotonbori is also called “Kuidaore Town”, but this seems to be related to the locality and the temperament of the Osaka people.

007.jpg
Osaka's food culture, called the kitchen in the world, has been developed as a “dish that makes use of soup stock” with a thin taste.

007.jpg
As for the soy sauce that colors the food, the Osaka people use light soy sauce, so the color and fragrance are suppressed, and the taste and color of the ingredients stand out more. In addition, there are plenty of high-quality liquors in the surrounding areas such as Kashiwa and Ikeda.

008.jpg
Dotonbori, the center of Osaka, blessed with a food-related environment, was a busy area where the mouthful and discerning Osaka people visited to eat. Would have developed as.

The Dotonbori River, which runs through Dotonbori, has a promenade “Tonbori River Walk” on both banks of the river.
010.jpg
Tonbori River Walk is a quiet promenade a little away from the fighting of Dotonbori, and you can enjoy a stroll while looking up at the shops along the river.

011.jpg
There are two types of tour boats. The first is the Tonori River Cruise, a 20-minute excursion course that goes to and from Dotonbori while listening to tourist information.
The other is a course that goes around the Kyocera Dome and Nakanoshima Park from Dotonbori called “Naniwa Expedition Cruise with Rakugoya”. This is not only a tourist guide, but it is also very popular with tourists because of its fulfilling content such as a rakugo performer giving a short story, a quiz, and a musical instrument performance.

012.jpg
Speaking of Dotonbori, the huge 3D signboard including the Glico signature of Takahashi is also a highlight. Each store, including the traditional “Kani Doraku”, has an atmosphere like a doll theme park.

013.jpg
Dotonbori is also known as a local gourmet spot. Because it is within walking distance to Shinsaibashi / Amemura and Nankai Namba Station area, you can enjoy okonomiyaki udon, ramen, omelet rice, etc. You can go to Osaka Gourmet where you can enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant together.

The crime of Kyoto that welcomes tourists in "Yukata even in winter"

In Kyoto, tourists walking in yukata are noticeable even in winter. Why did this happen? “A kindergarten that makes cheap things for tourists ca n’t be stopped once it ’s done,” says an oriental cultural researcher, Alex Kerr, who lives in Kyoto, and journalist Yumi Kiyono.
img_103728bafe9ef8097bfaa6874ab78af1422127.jpg

* This article is a re-edit of a part of Alex Carr, Yumi Seino's "The Lost Sightseeing of Tourism" (Chukou Shinsho Racre).

◆ "Zombie" and "Frankenstein" culture
There are two options to take to protect traditional culture.

One is to choose a way to preserve the old styles and conventions. For example, Noh uses this method to bring the art style of hundreds of years ago to the present.
However, in the case of Noh, it was successful, but the way it was passed down to the past can sometimes fossilize the culture and make it meaningless to those who live today. It can be said to be a “zombie” culture that seems to be alive but not really alive.

The other is to flexibly change the shape and shape according to the times while firmly holding the core. This is a form of healthy inheritance of the culture, but without understanding the core, there is a risk of moving toward the creation of a monster different from the essence.

For this reason, it seems that this is "Frankenstein" compared to the previous "Zombie".

In tourism development in China, it is common to destroy old streets and build a “new and old town” like a movie set there. At first glance, it has a historical atmosphere, but the materials, shapes, and methods of making are far from the real Chinese culture.

Tourists accustomed to “new and old towns” like theme parks will not be able to distinguish between real and fake things, even in their own culture. This is the threat of Frankensteinization.

◆ Foreigners walking around the city wearing yukata in winter
Over the past few years in Kyoto, Frankenstein has become prominent in towns. One of them is the trend of retail shops and rental shops that handle inexpensive kimonos for foreign tourists.

The kimonos they handle are brighter in color and pattern than the original kimonos, and are only flashy. The fabric is also cheap, such as made of polyester, and is not made by inheriting Japanese tradition.

Even when dressed up, there are many cases that are strange and stale, such as wearing yukata in the winter, or combining with a gorgeous band with a sense of volume even though it is a yukata. Foreigners who don't know the true kimono culture have the illusion that even these masquerades are traditional Japanese costumes, and they are happy to walk around the city.

In the construction rush of hotels and simple dormitories, such Frankensteinization has permeated the building space in Kyoto.

In a new hotel, an inverted Japanese umbrella was attached to the restaurant's lighting shade. It may be a new interpretation of “Japanese style” as seen from the designer's perspective, but looking at this sight, the acquaintance of the Kyoto people seems stunned. This is because some areas of Kyoto still have a culture that dislikes the opening of an umbrella in the house as an ominous sign.

◆ Japanese abandoned the succession of “kimono” and “machiya”
These phenomena are not only a superficial issue of tourists and business owners' ignorance of Japanese culture and traditions, but also have other fundamental factors. In other words, the Japanese abandoned their traditional kimono and inherited the space of a townhouse.

The kimono and the upside-down umbrella are not simply born from the “design perspective”, but are made by no other Japanese as “Japan that was forcibly created to please tourists”. .

If the real thing is breathing on a daily basis, the fake will be immediately seen and the cheap copy will not be flooded. For example, if kimono rental was done by a kimono store with a long history in Kyoto, it may have been connected to the tradition of kimono culture.
However, unfortunately, in Japan today, there is a “culture blank” everywhere. And as a result of the widening of the gap, Frankenstein is pleased with it.

People who handle historical culture and cultural assets forget the original meaning and provide cheap things for tourists in English called “dumbing down”, or “children”.

Is it OK to have a “Yuru-chara” in front of the shrine's torii?
In addition, the increase in inbound is not the only cause of child-rearing in Japan.

For example, “mascot characters” and “yuru characters” created by national, local governments, and public institutions. The great success of “Kumamon” in Kumamoto Prefecture is a typical example, but now you can greet your character with a smile everywhere in Japan. This is a by-product of tourism for Japanese people rather than inbound.

If you can meet “Yuru-chara” in downtown areas such as the station square, shopping streets, and amusement parks, I think it will be fun and effective. However, if you bring “Yuru-chara” in front of the gates of historical temples, the torii gates of sacred shrines, the precincts, and the side of art, you will not be able to stop childbirth.

Japan's culture of childishness can be seen even in places registered as World Heritage sites.

At Nijo Castle in Kyoto, in order to protect the original lacquer work from deterioration, it is displayed and released in place of a duplicate. According to the Kyoto City website, the restoration and preservation of lacquer work has been undertaken at Ninomaru Palace since 1972.

The Muromachi and Edo period lacquer paintings have a mysterious and meditative atmosphere, with a dull paper color, “foil feet” on the gold leaf, and a deep shade of rock paint and ink. It is a feature. Because of this atmosphere, viewers can think deeply about the years when art has been handed down and enjoy deep inspiration.

During the Edo period, men used rental loincloth for their underwear at Yoshiwara Yukaku! ?

sarasa-660x350.jpg
In the article I introduced earlier, “I don't have money over the pass! The life of such an Edo kid was actually supported by a rental store”, I introduced that a loss shop * rented out household goods and clothes. Many other things were lent out.

This time, we will introduce some of the most popular items and backgrounds.
* Loss store: A shop that rented daily necessities during the Edo period.

A furoshiki, a towel, and a loss shop will start with a single cloth!

The rental industry now rents out small items such as tableware and hats, but the same was true for the Edo period. For example, there was a piece of cloth, such as a washcloth and a furoshiki, which was rented to the townspeople by the loss shop.

From the point of view of modern people, people tend to think that they only need to buy a washcloth, but at that time, new fabrics were relatively expensive because they were not as advanced in technology and productivity as they were today. This was the reason why used clothing stores became popular in the Edo period.

For the same reason, the “one piece of cloth that can be rented”, which has become a popular item at a casualty shop, is a 6-shaft bundo used mainly by men.

Although there is no direct relationship with the loss shop, there is a scene where the joinery shop semi-contracted from the pawn shop with the rakugo “Sanchaban”, and the six scales using expensive cloth such as crisps are worthy. It is a picture of what is happening.

We also do cleaning! Was the loss shop also a FUNDOSHI business?
Although it was a rent-a-care shop that was rented out to six shakufundo and was useful to many men, it was a service that grabbed the hearts of customers who rented the loincloth. The loss shop also knew, and if the customer brought the dirty loincloth, he picked it up and cleaned it.

Moreover, it wasn't just washed, but it lends something that had been washed and burned (ironed), though it was a fee. The word “●● business” is being used these days, but did you say that the business style of a loss shop is Sashizume Fundoshi Business?

If it gets dirty, it's not just washed, but also replaced by an iron – these advanced services may have turned the loss shop into a big business.

The fallen maid, the abandonment of babies ... A number of mysterious incidents that took place in the back of the Edo period

No.039.jpg
In the Edo period, it was said that there were about 3,000 women at Ooku, which was created to serve generals. There must have been various events where such people gathered. Here are some mysterious mysterious incidents that occurred in Ooku.

Please also include an article about Ooku's ghost story.

The last incident of storm
When I was in Bunsei, my name was "storm". (* Osaka means a middle-class maid in the depths) On the morning of May 15, I couldn't see the storm, but the people around me said, "I wonder if I'm talking about a long story somewhere." I don't care.

However, because it does not appear even after a while, the maid in the shared room begins to look for it as expected. The storm will not appear even if the time passes and it becomes midnight. At that time, everyone was in a turmoil to search for whereabouts of the storm.

Ookuchu becomes a fuss, and the night of May 18th is greeted. Around 2:00 am, a confused voice reverberates in the ears of people under the castle tower. And suddenly it was a remnant body of the storm.

A bloody storm swollen all over the body. About 10 guards have witnessed, but all seem to be surprised.

Since the storm has been saying `` I want to go up to the castle tower '' from before, it seems to be rumored that I was fascinated by monsters or I was punished because I went up with a maiden body It becomes. (* The castle tower is prohibited for maids)


Baby abandonment
Although Ooku was forbidden for boys, there was an incident where a baby was born in the bathroom. On November 14, Bunsei 5th, when a person in charge of toilet cleaning worked as usual, a baby was found.

The surprised human feet are reported to the elderly. (* Your senior citizen is a position that can be seen by a high-ranking person.) The fact that a baby was born in the depths of men's ban is a big fuss. The search for a born mother begins, but I cannot find it.

However, it was discovered that a young lady of the elderly confessed. The young woman gave birth to a baby on the 13th of the previous day. I'm surprised that I was spending a strange face since I was born.

A young lady telling her that she had worked normally before and after childbirth, so no one noticed it. This young girl became pregnant before she went up. It was an end-of-life behavior that I hadn't noticed about pregnancy and had trouble dealing with it.

The baby was a girl and the body was found like a blister. When she was in trouble, this young girl was watching the baby's body with a biting face. I was envious of being a daring woman. After that, this young girl will be freed up.


A maiden case
In June 4th Bunsei, a maid who worked as a writer (* Goyuhitsu, a position that creates documents) called Orai sometimes did not come out at a fixed time. I can't find it in the morning, but I report it to the official and start looking for it, but I don't know where it will be after 3 days.

After a great search with borrowed human feet, I found the figure of Ori in the vehicle in the vehicle room I looked for on the 4th day.

Orio who was in the elderly vehicle called Fujishima was full of blood and died. The blood is already black and I don't know when I died.

When it was discovered, the vehicle was a blood clot, and it was so devastating that the whole body was stained with blood. Therefore, you will be afraid of being a youkai.

The disaster was caused by Fujishima, the owner of the vehicle. I decided to make a new vehicle, but I wasn't happy.

"Hell" that secretly prostitutes secretly

“Hell” doesn't work for prostitution on the roadside, and even doesn't appear in Oka. There seemed to be more and more quietly connected with customers by introduction of acquaintances, prostitution in a restaurant room, sometimes at home.

In addition, during the Edo period, there were waiting houses and encounter tea houses that were used for secret meetings between men and women, so there may have been a “hell” where you met customers or prostituted.

The word “hell” has a very scary image, but in fact the name “hell” is different from the scary hell, which is a Buddhist view of the world.

There are various theories, but an amateur woman is called "jijo" or "earth", and is called "hell" in the sense of "the innermost of the earth girl ..." or "jijo (amateur)" Among them, the word “hell” was used to mean “the best…”.

By the way, from the keywords “hell” and “prostitute”, I think some people associate the legendary prostitute “Jigoku Tayu” that was said to have existed in Yuri in the Muromachi period. is.
