鬼子母神のすすきみみずく

豊島区の「すすきみみずく保存会」の皆さんが、秩父市の「すすき」2万5千本を刈り、雑司が谷鬼子母神の「すすきみみずく」を作成するために来秩父しました。この話しは、病気がち母のために娘が、「すすきみみずく」を作り、売ってお金で薬を買って、母を看病した内容です。

今年もたくさん秩父市で「すすき」を刈って頂き、立派なすすきみみずくを作って頂きたいと存じます。

Watch this doll! It’s adorable and fluffy figure. I like this one and have been supporting to make for 9 years.

“Susuki-mimizuku” is a traditional Japanese doll that is made of Japanese pampas grasses in Chichibu city. The story is what 10-year-old poor daughter couldn’t buy the medicine for her sick mother, then she put a lot of efforts into making “Susuki-mimizuku” and earned the money to buy the medicine at last. Her mother was getting better so far. The meaning is to bring enthusiasm for your conduction by yourself before another person’s help.

Zoushigaya is famous for this “Susuki-mimizuku”. The concerned persons came and saw to cut these Japanese pampas grasses with sickles at Chichibu area by the Chichibu-Toshima sister city interchange.
