This paper considers the Iwamatsu Tsuneie clan trend by comparing and examining Taiheiki and historical records. In the conventional history, it was the principal axis to research of the capability of the politics and the military affairs of a Nitta Yoshisada individual, the Southern Dynasty, meaning, etc.Moreover, in Nitta clan research in Taiheiki, it was the mainstream to consider Yoshisada's person image which led comparison with other generals. Then, I would like to clarify the Iwamatsu clan image in the view to the Iwamatsu Tsuneie clan of the Tiheiki author, or Taiheiki by performing contrast of Taiheiki and historical records.The ancient documents of houses, etc. are used for historical records. I utilize Taiheiki,the Seigenin-bon made old also in Taiheiki.A prologue shows way return of a previous work, the meaning of its research, a viewpoint, and a measure plan.This paper, I focus on the influential branch, Iwamatsu. Although the lwamatsu were not important figures in Taiheiki, I have considered what kind of activity there actually was using the historical records related to lwamatsu Tsuneie and Iwamatsu Tsunemasa. As a result, although Iwamatsu branch was represented by only one general in Taiheiki, it is shown clearly in fact that two had participated at the level of general class in the Kamakura attack.In the last chapter, I described the result and subject of this paper and the view of future research.

In November every year, a ritual was held in the imperial court to offer the newly harvested rice to deities. On the last day of the ritual event, a banquet was given by the emperor for courtiers. The highlight of the banquet (Toyoakari-no-sechi-e) was Gosechi-no-mai, which was danced by four (or five) gorgeously dressed young ladies. Courtiers, men and women, all looked forward to this feast. To provide a dancer, however, was a highly costly operation, and therefore, not many aristocrats were willing to undertake the task, thus, royal ladies, too, were sometimes asked to provide a dancer. In the second year of Eien, (or yr. 988), Kotaigo provided a dancer. The word Kotaigo could mean the wife of the former emperor or the empress mother. In the previous papers by three researchers, this Kotaigo was assumed as Junshi, who was the wife of the former emperor En-yu. This paper clarifies that the Kotaigo in 988 cannot be Junshi, but must be Senshi, the Empress Mother. The confusion presumably came from Eiga Monogatari or A Tale of Flowering Fortunes — Annals of Japanese Aristocratic Life in the Heian Period, which reads that Junshi provided a dancer in the year when the 60th birthday of Fujiwara-no-Kaneie was celebrated, i.e, in 988. The descriptions of Junshi providing a dancer in the Tale, however, were too concrete and detailed to be a mere fabrication. Following the descriptions of the Tale, this paper concludes that Junshi did provide a dancer, but it was not in 988 but in 987.

Shishimai is a traditional performing art employing a lion mask. It is explained as a lion dance because shishi means lion and mai means dancing. Shishimai is one of the biggest and the most enjoyable events inJapanese communities. The performers try to make contact with the supernatural world through dancing rhythmically with the mask on. Most shishimai in Japan are performed at Shinto festivals or on the New Year by people in the community and transmitted among them from elders to younger people, while those in some Asian societies are performed at the opening ceremony of a company or on the Lunar New Year by professional groups and transmitted from master to pupil there. Shishimai in Japanese communities are a religious symbol for thepeople there. Shishimai give them hope, satisfaction, power to live, identity and good relationship in a community not only in case of peace but also in case of emergency. Shishimai show people’s decision to form asense of identity and maintain their community.
