ABSTRACT

Balhae envoys & Bugaku exchange in Heian period -Focusing on New Year’s royal rituals- This paper is the study of Japanese royal court dance and music contacting Balhae envoys, focusing on the New Year’s royal ritual of the Heian period. In the early Heian period, Japan had accommodated the many institutions and cultural relics from the Tang Dynasty, and declared its own imperialism was trying to build the discriminate-barbarism of Japan. According to the “Konin-Dairisiki”, Balhae envoys were attending the New Year’s royal ritual, Ganjitunosetie Aoumanosetie Toukanosetie Zarai, as a part of the Japanese diplomatic strategy. In case of Zarai there was no court dance and music. But the other case, Ganjitunosetie had danced Banzaigaku Ziku Yuntengaku Gaden Engigaku, Aoumanosetie had danced Koteihazingaku Gyokusyugoteika Sekihakutorika Banzaigaku Kisyungaku, Toukanosetie had danced Toka Banzaigaku Gaden Ziku Engigaku. Therefore, I guess that Balhae envoys was actively contact to Japanese royal court dance and music in the New Year’s royal events. Japan had welcomed Balhae envoys with diplomatic courtesy and court ceremony, and visually embodied their own Reigakusiso & Imperialism with playing the royal court dance and music. Balhae envoys were communicating actively through the royal court dance and music in a variety of events. And ‘Shinmaka’, the dance of Balhae, became settling into Japanese royal court dance and music. But on the other hand, we can see that Japanese dancer & Bugaku were flowing into the Balhae and that it was propagated to Tang. In addition, the Japanese royal court dance and music were inflowing directly to the Tang Dynasty, through the Kentoshi. Heian Japanese royal court dance and music were being spread in Northeast Asia through international exchange.
