[Megathread] Ozashiki Games

Post by IG Team » Tue Jul 05, 2016 2:24 am

Maiko-san:

I am making a list of games played at an Ozashiki! Please help me add on to the list! And please let me know if you can explain it any better or know the names!



Konpira Funefune
The players take turns to take away the "tokkuri no hakama" bowl. If the bowl is not there, you show a fist. If it is there, you keep your hand flat.

This game is called Konpira Funefune, and while being played the following song is sung:

Konpira funefune oite ni hokakete
syura syusyu syu
mawareba sikokuha sansyu
naka no gouri zouzusan
Konpira Daigongen
ichido mawareba
Konpira funefune oiteni hokakete
syura syusyu syu


???
The geiko/maiko is "Hatsu" and the other player is "Katsugoro." "Hatsu" drags "Katsugoro"
around with a long peice of cloth. When no one is looking, they "make love."

???
Players take turns pouring sake into a small cup. Whoever makes the sake spill
must take their penalty and drink the sake. This game keeps going on.

"Tora-Tora"
Two players are on either side of a screen.  On the count of three they both come out
from behind the screen posing as either the Samurai, Tiger, or Old Woman. The Samurai
beats the Tiger. The Tiger beats the Old Woman. The Old woman beats the Samurai.

"Tosenkyo"
The picture shows guests entertained by "Tosenkyo", a game played at Enseki (banquet) by throwing an opened "Sen-su" (Japanese tradition fan) at the target placed at a distance. The player sits on his/her knees, is throwing an opened fan at the target placed on the box set at a given distance from the player position.

Toshiha:

Okay this is an explanation and pictures of "Jan-Ken-Pon" / "Dontaku-san"

[Broken link removed]

Basically its this. let's say there is a customer and geiko. The customer will play a doctor- specifically of obstetrics and gynecology. The geiko will play the patient.

D:"Dontaku omimai moushimasu"
P:"Korewa korewa dontaku-san, soko wa hajika, izamazu koree"
D:"Shite shite yazen-no okusuriwa doudearo"
P:"Zuuki zuuki to itashimasu"
D:"Zuuki zuuki to shita dearou"

Patient(Geiko or Maiko):"I have been expecting you, doctor. Please come in"
Doctor(Guest):"Well, how about the medicine prescribed yesterday evening?
It's may be good for you."
Patient(Geiko or Maiko):"Oh! it's good for me, but feel pain."

Then "Ahaha / Ohoho"; where the patient and doctor look to each other smiling and say:

D:"Ahaha!"
P:"Ohoho!"
D & P:"Yoyoi-no yoi! Jan-ken-pon!"

A game of rock paper scissors in played. The loser is the patient and he or she puts their hands behind them as support as they lift up their abdomen. The winner becomes the doctor and plays "examination" by sticking out the index and middle fingers together toward the other person:

[Broken link removed]

Clearly the geiko has won this round ;)


Sometimes too a winner of jan-ken-pon can ride on the loser's back but this may be a slightly different variation of the game.

If the maiko or geiko rides on the customer's back a song is sung,

Jookyaa_wa_Nami_no_Ue, Kisha_tetsu_no_Ue.
Steamships are on the wave,
steam locomotives are above the iron railroad.

Kaminari_san_wa_Kumo_no_Ue.
Thunders are over the cloud

Urashima_san_wa_ano_Kame_no_Ue.
Mr.Urashima(a hero in a fairy tale) is on the sea turtle.

Neko_no_Irogoto_Yane_no_Ue.
Cats' love affair is on the roof.

Atashi_to_Anata_wa_Yuka_no_Ue"
I and you are on the bed.

And then she ends up laying on him.

[Broken link removed]

"Kami_sama" of "Bero_bero"

From arumuko of flickr:

This is a sort of a penalty game.
A person called "ONI", the eyes closing, rubs the hands,
turns the direction indicator made of a chopstick bending,
clockwise and counterclockwise and clockwise and so on,
accompanying with Samisen, beating time the other people's hands,
singing a song:
"Bero_bero_no_Kami_sama_wa,
Shoo_jiiki_na_Kami_sama_de, Osasa_no_hou_e_to,
Omomukyare, Omomukyare"

And then, when singing, Samisen playing and
the indicator turning stops,
a person pointed by the indicator, pays wonderful
penalty to drink a cup of Sake.
After drinking, the new "ONI" does the same performance.
This game goes on and on.

[Broken link removed]

"Izari Hatsugorou"

"Izari_Katsugorou, Kuruma_ni_nosete,
Hiku_wa_Hatsuhana, Hakone_yama,
Hakone_Yama.
Mou_shi_Kattsu_an, Katsugoro_san,
Kokora_atari_wa_Yama_ga_Yue,
Momiji_ga_arunoni_Yuki_ga_furu.
Sazo_shitakatta_de_gozanshou"

"Shitai_shitai_wa_yamayama_naredo,
Omikake_doori_no_kono_Izari"

"Hon_nara_Kattsu_an,
Chausu_kae"

This "Izari_Katsugorou" is a parody game from an old revenge story named "Hakone_Reiken_Izari_no_Adauchi", written in 1801.

[Broken link removed]

The era is "Tenshou"(1573-1592) (the first half of the story is cut)
Hatsuhana was Katsugorou's wife.
They sought the foe around Yedo(Tokyo).
But Katsugorou became cripple(Izari) before revenging(Adauchi) at "Hakone_Yama"(Mt.Hakone near Tokyo).
Then Hatsuhana seeked the foe putting Katsugorou on a wagon(Kuruma) and pulling it.
At last the couple found the foe.
Hatsuhana by oneself attacked the foe but was killed by him,
and then miraculously Katsugorou's cripple healed,
and he accomplished the revenge.

This seductive game is almost irrelevantly to the story.

Autumn in Mt. Hakone(Hakone_Yama), thou being surrounded by
maple leaves(Momiji), because of in the mountain(Yama_ga_Yue) it falls snow(Yuki).
Hatsuhana(Maiko) says to Katsugorou(Guest); "I guess you wish to make love"
Katsugorou(Guest); "Of course I wish, but you can see this cripple"
Hatsuhana(Maiko); "Then it is to be Chausu",
saying she sits on him and clings to him.
And that's all.

"Chausu" means "woman on top position" Hatsuhana of course is played by the geiko/maiko dragging the scarf.

[Broken link removed]

Each other person pulls a short cloth obi bustle
so called "Obi_Age" , in the figure as the picture.
And pushs each other the partner's hips.
Then a person fell down is the looser.


Unnamed

"You turn that way I turn this way" ("Omae accha muke, washa koccha muite")

"back to back" ("Senaka awasete")

"we lay down on the bed back to back but..." ("Neta kota neetaga")

"..but as usual laying face to face with each other let's do it" ("Yappari koccha muuite neyoka")

[Broken link removed]

^_~


Unnamed

They play and speak each other opposite gestures and opposite saying, except crying.
One says and does the gesture "Oyama_no Oyama_no Mattake_ga Hamaguri_hoshii_to naiteita"
And the other says at the same time, doing the gesture "Ohama_no Ohama_no Hamaguri_ga Mattake_hoshii_to naiteita".
Gradually the speed of the speaking and the gesture becomes faster. The one mistakes the speaking or the gesture is the looser.

Oyama [mountain] make triangles twice over the head with the hand and the arm
Ohama [seashore] make inverted triangles twice on the Tatami_floor
Mattake [pine mashroom, i.e. symbol of male] stand the right forearm, left hand attaching at the opposite side of the right elbow
Hamaguri [a sort of clam, i.e. symbol of female] make a ring or a triangle with fingers and thumbs between legs
Hoshhii: want, wish
Naiteita: crying

Thanks so much to arumuko for all of his explanations!

Toshiha:

Ozashiki Game Konkonchiki

The object of this game is to reach through a loop formed in a cloth and grab an object before the loop is pulled closed. In this case the object is the sake cup.

Image

I have also seen this game featured in an old ukiyo-e (did i spell that right?)

Here's an ozashiki asobi I bet no one has seen or heard of:

Now if someone can tell me what the purpose is of this game.... I bet you'd never hear of this one in Kyoto.

Onanako:

lol it looks like one is pumping her like a water well, and the other lady is 'planting' seeds. her going to clap would mimic gathering seeds from a basket to plant. and i guess the goal is to "grow" the crop so to speak. :coy:

sakura_blossom:

"Tora Tora" lyrics:

Japanese romaji:
Senri no hashiru youna yabu no naka wo minasan nozoite gorouji masse.
Kin no Hachimaki Tasuki ni Watounai ga "En Yara Ya" to Toraesi Kedamono wa.
Tora to-ra to-ra tora, tora to-ra to-ra tora, tora to-ra to-ra tora!

English translation:
Wearing a golden Japanese towel around his head and a golden cord around his shoulders and upper arms, saying "Yo-heave-ho", Watounai caught a beast.
It is a tiger! a tiger! a tiger!
