Festivals of Japan

Events across Japan. A collection ranging from traditional to seasonal offerings.

Warei Shrine Festival,Uwajima Ushioni Festival - Ehime

On the 22nd, Gaia Carnival is held where youth enjoy it to music composed by Uzaki Ryudo. On the 23rd, you see the Children’s ushi-oni Parade with cute mini ushi-oni demons, the laid back sounds of the Uwajishima Odori, and the fireworks display on the waters of Uwajishima Bay. The final day of the festival on the 24th brings “Oyaushioni,” a parade of ushi-oni through the streets and the star of the festival, togyu bullfighting, a unique Shikoku tradition. As night falls, the dashi floats and mikoshi portable shrines enter the waters of the Sukagawa River for the Hashirikomi finale, a competition for a gohei charm attached to the top of a bamboo pole in the middle of the river.
