The most of autumn festivals were canceled this year due to corona.
It’s a really pity because there are tons of autumn festivals all over Japan this harvest period .
I put the video of last year.
This is my home town harvest festival at USUKI shrine of HIMEJI city in Hyogo prefecture west part of Japan .
It started AD 227 which follows the mythological story of the imperial family that age .
We have same kind of 22 portable shrines in our town. Each of them are 2-3 ton heavy and many people have to carry them.
We have lantern breaking ritual in previous night!
I love this powerful feeling sooo much from my childhood.
It’s always held on 21,22nd October in ordinary year.
If you want to feel the dynamism of this festival, come over here next year!!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
