At 8:40 am on Friday May 3rd, don’t miss the great HAKATA Matsubayashi !
Matsubayashi was originally a folk event intended to celebrate the New Year on the Chinese New Year’s Day.
Regarding the origin of Hakata Matsubayashi, it appears to have started as a celebration of Heisei Seiji’s life and deeds, a very esteemed local who died in 1179.
Nowadays it is known simply as Hakata Dontaku Festival, usually taking place on May 3rd, and for the purpose the streets of Hakata host a parade representing various facets of Fukuoka traditional life .
An handful of traditional boroughs, also known as “nagare” are represented in this parade. These are Fukujin-nagare, the Ebisu-nagare, and the Daikoku-nagare , represented by 3 figures representing the spirits of good fortune known as “Fukujin”.
The three “Fukujin” show up each riding a horse, while groups of children in traditional attires follow them singing and playing drums.
Hakata Matsubayashi or Dontaku Festival is a major celebration of Hakata’s folk traditions and WeBase Hakata is very proud to be associated with this magnificent festival.
So please come visit us and feel free to inquire at the front desk for more details on this grand event.

いよいよGW突入❗️
そして、松囃子(まつばやし)とどんたくが始まります
特に松囃子は、5月3日 8時50分からWeBaseも訪問を受けるので、ご宿泊の方はお見逃しなく‼️
写真は去年の表敬訪問の様子です☺️
松囃子は本来、小正月(旧正月15日)の行事で、新年を祝う民俗行事でした。
今日では、博多どんたく港まつりの源流として、5月3日、4日どんたくパレードの幕開けを飾るとともに町中を祝って回わります。
中世の民俗文化が色濃く残る博多松囃子を、是非WeBase博多で一緒に見学しましょう♪
