Nagamochi-uta, a wedding song from the old Date lands in Miyagi Prefecture. I call this the Trousseau Song, because “nagamochi” is the item of luggage (if I recall, a box on a long pole) that one packed part of a trousseau in. This song was sung as the bridal procession came over the doorstep of the new home.

This song is “Sōma nihen-gaeshi” (相馬二遍返し) a song from Sōma in eastern Fukushima Prefecture. The image you see is Sōma Shrine, built on the site of the Sōma clan’s old castle at Sōma-Nakamura.

Iwao Akiyama - BiographyIwao Akiyama born 1921
The prints by Iwao Akiyama are witty and whimsical. But by non-Japanese the humor is not so easy to understand, especially if Japanese characters are used on the print like on this one. Here the characters are a short poem by Santoka Taneda about a humorous expression of people in Japanese hot spring baths.
Iwao Akiyama works in woodblock technique and prints on a long-fibred, wavy Japanese paper. The edition size of this design is 225 and the print dates from 1978.
