Mikoshi is the carriage of the Shinto God, Kami. Kami, normally seated deep in the recesses of a shrine surrounded by wood, comes down to the secular world in Mikoshi only during the period of Matsuri, Japanese regional festival.
In this book, you can learn about the components of Mikoshi, how it is built and its historical background and 21 Matsuris held across the country. With beautiful images and detailed explanation, it will help people around the world enhance their understanding of Mikoshi, which Japanese have treasured as traditional cultures for centuries.
Unosuke Miyamoto was born in 1941 in the Asakusa district in Tokyo. After graduated from Meiji University School of Commerce, he took over the family business in 1975 to become the seventh proprietor of the Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten, which sells Mikoshi (a miniature shrine carried in festivals) and Taiko (Japanese drums).
