If you read this, you can see the efforts to become a Living National Treasure and the contribution through Gidayubushi, but the human appeal is us. Awaji Puppet Theatre The seat member knows best. The most disciple, Awaji Puppet Theatre Introducing the message written by Master Yukimi Takemoto, who has been active as Tayu Hanagata, when the late Master Tomoji was certified as a Living National Treasure.
"The greatest happiness"
I must be the one who feels the recognition of Living National Treasure as the most delightful and most natural result in the world. I have always been grateful and respectful to my teacher, who has served as a disciple since the end of the war and gave me warm guidance in the midst of rigor. During my training in Ayuhara, I was absorbed in playing in the riverbank where I went to fetch water and was scolded, but when I woke up in the middle of the winter night, I heard the sound of the master's shamisen and said, "Everything is hard. Behind the words, "There is nothing you can't do if you do it," I was impressed by the fact that even though I was a child, there was an unknowing effort.
As a crybaby, I was strict about myself, saying, "Human life is studying," and I have many training rooms without neglecting the pursuit of art, and I can see that I continue to practice every day after training. It was often not seen without tears. The shamisen must express the situation and the scene. To convey your heart, you don't just play with your hands, but with your big toes and your hips. In terms of feelings, it is important to unify the spirit called "belly" and play with the breath that pushes, and to constantly measure the breath of "Aun" while the tayu and the heart are united. Speaking with the master's shamisen, you can work on a stage with a sense of security and satisfaction that you can bring out more than your own strength. As a disciple of the Living National Treasure, I would like to continue to devote myself and make efforts.
Awaji Puppet Theatre The members of the club are longing for the art and life of Master Tomoji, and are practicing in each field such as shamisen, narrative, and dolls. Thank you for your support.
