This paper is a folklore study of a festival called “Danadui” that is handed down to Taketomi Island in Okinawa. The most important thing in the study of the festival will be the “site” to perform the festival and the “transit group” in charge of the festival. There are indeed a variety of people at the festival site. The people participating in the Tanadui site were analyzed by dividing them into the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd leading groups.
Although Tanadui has undergone many changes, it is still Taketomijima’s largest annual event and has been handed down by local residents. I would like to summarize the ‘transmission power’ that Tanadui could continue without being cut off. The first is the human-God communication. The awe of the “god” that took root in the lives of local residents served as a great driving force. Second is the relationship between man and man. Tanadui has a well-established organization that supports festivals such as Hyangwoohei Association, Entertainment Preservation Association, and the National Taketomijima Cultural Association.
