Narimono kyôshitsu 鳴物教室

Today Aisome and I drove Somemaru to the Hanjôtei rakugo theater. Today was narimono kyôshitsu (yose instrument class) day. Somemaru gave a dance lesson to some eager zenza (lit. “first-seat,” storytellers in training who go on first during rakugo programs). Fortunately, Somemaru allows me to participate too. Today we learned the dance “Fukugawa,” and reviewed one that we had learned previously, “Kappa.” Some of the zenza are so good, while I’m still having a hard time remembering all the moves. I couldn’t take any pictures during the lesson, so I took one in the car on the way back to Somemaru’s house.

Once we got back, I took this picture of Somemaru and Aisome. This is a Japanese maple tree that they planted earlier in the year, and they are thrilled to see that the tree to doing so well to put on such a colorful display. Somemaru and Aisome also look great in kimono, don’t they?

今日は愛染さんと車で染丸師匠を繁昌亭まで送りました。今日は鳴物教室の日でした。師匠は熱心な前座に踊りを教えていらっしゃいました。有難いことに、僕もその中に入れていただけました。今日習った踊りは「福川」で、先月習った「カッパ」を復習しました。とてもお上手な前座は何人かいるけど、僕はまだそれぞれの型を覚えるのはちょっと難しいです。お稽古中に写真は撮れなかったので、帰りに車の中で撮りました。

帰ったら師匠と愛染さんの写真を撮りました。今年彼らがこの紅葉を裏庭に植えました。生き生きしていて、そしてこんなに派手な色に変わり、二人はとても喜んでいました。師匠も愛染さんも着物姿でとても素敵じゃないですか。
