Every June is the "tsuyu" season in which the weather is cloudy and rainy. The grey rainy day may let people feel miserable...but once upon a time Japan has had a magical custom that can make the next day clear up! Today I'd like to introduce this custom to you.
The teruterubouzu is a doll made of white cloth or paper, it is said that the next day will be sunny if hanging it on the eaves.In Japan, when children want to take part in sports meeting or outings, etc., people will have the custom of making and hanging the teruterubouzu to pray that "the weather will be fine tomorrow".Then is there any rumor that if you hang the teruterubouzu upside down, it will be a rainy day?
Making, hanging, painting face♪Let's pray for a sunny day joyfully by teruterubouzu!
