Yokkaichi town 四日市


oonyuudoo 四日市の大入道
huge monster with a tonsured head

O-nyudo
This monster, a priest of large features and a bald head, is known in various regions of Japan.

The O-Nyudo of Yokkaichi
It is paraded through the town on the shrine festival of Suwa Jinja 諏訪神社 on a special float.
This figure was made in a suburb called OKE 桶, as a pun to oobake 大化, big monster.
In the soy sauce storehouse of a merchant in Oke village lived an old badger (tanuki), who changed into this Big Nyudo monster and played tricks on people.
People drove the badger out of the storehouse and made a big figure on the Nyudo instead. When pulling a string the figure would extend its neck to great length. The badger could not imitate such a feat and finally run away in shame.

The festival float is about 2.2 meters high, the figure of the Big Nyudo is about 3.9 meters when the neck is fully stretched. It can show its tongue and roll its eyes to frighten people.
There are also small paper dolls now in Yokkaichi as souvenirs.
On the People's Festival in August a special mascot of this figure parades through the city.
