Copyright©︎ Fukushima Central Television Co., Ltd.
“Souma Nomaoi” dates back 1,000 years; it began as a military exercise for Samurais.
It is recognized as an “Important Intangible Cultural Property.”
This 3-day festival takes places in Souma city where is famous for horse-breeding in Fukushima.
Events include a 1,000 meter horse race, and ends with men dressed in white to capture a horse with his bare hands to present to the shrine. This is a documentary of the event and the interaction among local people.


一千有余年の歴史を誇る相馬野馬追。古式に沿った行事は国の重要無形民俗文化財に指定されている。東日本大震災の年も鎮魂と復興を祈念して一部行事が執り行われた。祭りは、職人が手掛けた豪華絢爛な甲冑を身に着けた騎馬武者たちの《お行列》、旗指物をはためかせて疾走する《甲冑競馬》、花火で打ち上げられたご神旗を400騎を超える騎馬武者たちが奪い合う《神旗争奪戦》、裸馬を素手で捕えて奉納する神事《野馬懸》が執り行われる。日常の『静』と心躍らせ魂を燃焼させる相馬野馬追の『動』を、繊細かつダイナミックに躍動感あふれる美しい映像で伝える。
