旅館から近かったので、寄ってみました。中には鮮やかな山鉾が並んでいて、迫力がありました。2階からも見ることができ、高さを実感できます。これらが街を練り歩く姿を見たいと思いました。

日田は南部隈町あたりにある山鉾を展示してある会館です。向かいには八坂神社がありそこの大祭でユネスコの無形文化遺産に登録されました。
絢爛豪華な山鉾が数基、そしてこの祭りの歴史が展示されています。

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
