Problems with Yosakoi

As social movements toward the elimination of gangsters have intensified in recent years, the Yosakoi Festival Promotion Association, which hosts the Yosakoi Festival, has been held.2012å¹´From (24), the participating teams are obliged to submit a "pledge" declaring that they are not involved with the gangsters, and according to the promotion association, all 2012 people applied for participation in the summer of 24 (198). The team has issued a pledge.However, in July 2012, Akira Takahashi, one of the suspects arrested by the Kochi Office as an attempted blackmail case involving a gangster, became the "team manager" of "Tenjin Jusai". It turns out that he has signed the pledge.The promotion association decided to consider whether or not to participate in "24 people and 7 colors", saying that "it may conflict with the pledge", but after that, "1 people and XNUMX colors" have declined to participate.[2]..Regarding the above-mentioned arrest charges, there is a possibility of false arrest, and the prosecutor did not appear in the trial, which was an unusual case. He was acquitted in April 2013 and has since been confirmed.

Participating in Yosakoi requires the preparation of local cars and costumes, the securing of practice venues, choreography and music production costs.Dancers pay tens of thousands of yen to participate, but in many cases it is not enough, and many teams other than corporate teams have sponsor companies.While the number of participating teams is increasing year by year, it is not uncommon for teams to dissolve due to financial difficulties due to the withdrawal of sponsors. Even if it is limited to corporate teams (including club teams whose naming rights are owned by the company) and corporate teams that have won the awards (Yosakoi Grand Prize, Gold Award, Silver Award, Special Jury Award) that will be judged at the headquarters competition hall after 2000. , Kochi Prefecture Construction Industry Association, Kochi Prefecture Architects Association, Central, Shikoku Development, Kochi Daimaru, Fujitsu, Kochi Prefecture Truck Association (Toraku), Softbank have withdrawn.Some became a central club team that revived after more than 10 yearsChifure cosmeticsI made a main sponsorship contract including naming rights[3]However, if one company is the operating body, most of them are dissolved as they are.

Only the Otesuji Headquarters competition hall has a performance schedule decided in advance by lottery.The headquarters competition hall is divided into a daytime section and a nighttime section, but the daytime section is a screening venue for awards other than the district competition hall federation encouragement award, and the local TV station broadcasts live, and the nighttime section. Is the most important competition venue because a special medal is awarded only to the headquarters competition venue.However, due to the road permission, the performance time is shorter than other competition halls and performance halls, so only 170 teams can dance at the headquarters in both the day and night sections.Therefore, if the number of teams applying for participation exceeds 170, all teams that have participated for the first time and teams that have not participated for 10 years or more, and if the number of teams exceeds 170, the teams outside the prefecture (excluding the teams that won this award in the previous year) have participated less frequently. A preliminary lottery will be held, and only the winning team will be able to dance at the headquarters competition hall. In 2017, the number of teams eligible for the lottery was 38, but the number of lottery slots was only two.The number of appearances of teams outside the prefecture that are eligible for the lottery is affected by the total number of participating teams, but in 2, up to the 2017th participating team was eligible for the lottery.If you do not win the lottery and dance at the main competition hall in the daytime section, you will not be able to automatically win any prizes other than the encouragement prize.Some teams, such as children's teams, decline the night club, so some teams can dance only in the night club, but they are not subject to judging (individual award medals can be obtained).Since the 7th tournament is a milestone tournament, we extended the road permission time and adjusted so that all teams could dance at the headquarters competition hall.However, because it was a commemorative tournament, we obtained explanations and consent from the surrounding area and extended the time specially, so it is currently impossible for all teams to dance at the headquarters competition hall every time.[4]..There is also an opinion from teams outside the prefecture that they want to draw lots based on the number of appearances regardless of whether they are outside or inside the prefecture, or to draw lots for all teams.However, if the lottery is conducted under the same conditions inside and outside the prefecture, it may result in inequality for the prefecture team for the following reasons.On the final day, the national tournament and the after-night festival will be held at the same time, but if the entry of the national tournament is accepted, the teams outside the prefecture can dance at the headquarters competition hall at the national tournament even if they cannot win the award at the main festival.However, the prefecture team is not eligible to participate in the national tournament, so if they cannot win the award in the actual performance, they will not be able to participate in the evening festival.As the number of participating teams has increased year by year, the award race is tough, and it is increasing that the teams that have won the grand prize, the top winning teams of the previous year, and the regular winning teams cannot win the award in the actual performance (Awards higher than the Jury's Special Award in 2016). 10 out of 4 teams won no prize in 2017).Moreover, although there are 22 actual prizes, the encouragement prize has one frame outside the prefecture, so the maximum number of teams in the prefecture that can participate in the evening festival is 1.Other awards can be awarded regardless of whether they are inside or outside the prefecture, and multiple teams outside the prefecture receive the awards every year. In 21, 2017 teams participated in the national tournament (of which 46 teams won the actual competition and 4 teams participated only in the national tournament), while 19 teams in the prefecture were able to participate in the evening festival.Although the operation of the national convention and the after-night festival are integrated, it is difficult to make arrangements in advance because the purpose of the event and the host organization are different.
