  1. We received a comment from a student at Tsukuba University:
    This child is posing like a Kabuki actor with a costume to match. This particular costume with its fluffy wig is used by Kabuki actors during their lion dance. The flower-like prop this child is holding is used for the famous Kabuuki act called “Renjishi”.

    筑波大学の学生さんからコメントをいただきました:
    この子供は歌舞伎役者のような衣装を着てポーズをとっています。歌舞伎役者が獅子舞を踊るときに使う、ふわふわのカツラをつけた衣装です。この子供が持っている花のような小道具は、歌舞伎の有名な演目である「連獅子」に使われます。
