Summary of the festival
The men who put on a blazing head, white headband on their head, a long rope attached to their waist, and bare feet on barefoot, put paper in their mouths in their mouths and walked through the streets of such a deep winter. The figure that makes the bell in hand sound like "shan, shan" and makes a step forward is a thing that has been passed on without change even after hundreds of years.
On 14th we visit the Jozan Jyozan, on 15th we will visit Morioka Hachimangu Shrine and on 26th we will visit Sakurayama Shrine.
