Hachinohe Enburi Festival is one of the 5 biggest snow festivals in Tohoku area of Japan.
Designated as an National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property, the “Hachinohe Enburi” is a local dance performance expressing prayers for a good harvest. The dance is said to take its name from a farm tool called “eburi” (or “iburi/yusaburi"), which makes flattens the ground. It is a ritual for shaking the gods of the fields to wake them up and to put the people’s spirits into the earth.
The dancers, called Tayu, wear large, brilliantly-ornamented eboshi hats in the shape of horses' heads. Enburi’s most unique and distinctive feature is these hats and the way the dancers wearing them shake their heads around in wide arcs. The dance expresses the entire set of actions involved in rice cultivation, including sowing seeds and planting seedlings.
There are two types of dance: one called the Nagaenburi with slow movements and the other called the Dosaienburi with a quick tempo. Between those dances, other dances are performed, including dances for celebration, such as Matsu no Mai, Ebisu Mai, and Daikoku Mai, and the one called "Enko-enko" which is performed by children.
