Hassaku Festival

On September 6 and 7, another annual event is held in Matsuo Taisha shrine.

It is called "Hassaku festival".
Hassaku is corresponding to the date of August 1.
We have loads of natural disaster or harmful disease in this season, so it originally began to pray for the protection from them, a good harvest, or our health.

They hold some events like Sumo wrestling or traditional dance at present.
The venue is lit up by some lanterns with colors.
So even you do not have any knowledge about this festival, you might be able to have some good times there.

You can visit there by bus or Hankyu train.
For more details, please look for that on the internet.

If you are into this, please have a vist there!
