Dekanshobushi is a song about the culture, traditions and the life of people in Sasayama area.
It’s the arranged verson of ”Mitsubushi” of Sasayama.
Mitsubushi is a song that people used to dance with as a treat for their hardwork during the year. It’s also one of the irreplacable events that people look forward to the most. People usually sing and dance all night to relax themselves from daily pressure.

Development of Dekansho clause




この出会いが元となり「丹波篠山 山家(やまが)の猿が 花のお江戸で芝居する」というデカンショ節の一節とともに丹波篠山の地名は一気に全国に広がりました。

The coincidence happened in Edoya Inn, where the local Sasayama people met students from Tokyo University in 1988 was the trigger that made Dekanshobushi nationally known.
The former Sasayama Domain-Mr. Aoyama was enthusiastic about education, was famous for raising prodigies and his action of sending various local students to go on field trips to Tokyo after feudal domain system was abolished.
Students going on field trips usually spent their summer as shelter in Boushuhanchiman Beach.
In 1988, while Mr. Aoyama Tadakoto was singing their local folk songs energetically on the 2nd floor, the swimming team of Tokyo University heard them singing and was touched by the bold and unconstrained rhythm and the lyrics of the songs.
After they went back to Tokyo, they sang the folk song without constraint all the time, while other students were influenced by them and started to sing.
This event was the event that made Dekanshobushi–The monkey of Yamaga Sasayama acting in Edo Inn, and the name of Tanba Sasayama nationally well-known at once.

Origin of the ” Dekansho “


In music accompaniment, the word ”Dekansho” was transformed from ”Dkkoisho”, while it’s a way of Mr. Tou of Tanba saying ”work away from home” in his dialect.
There are other saying that Dekanshobushi is an abbreviation of the names of philosphers ” Descartes”, ”Kant”, and ”Schopenhauer”. Though it may sounded a little farfetched, if you think about how Dekanshobushi came from, and how it was spread, you may find it unsurprisingly pretty persuasive.
