I went to the Oyachi Annual Grand Festival in Oyachi, Atsubetsu Ward, Sapporo City. This is the festival I was doing on the 22nd and 23rd. I visited the gods and said, "I will bother you," and went around the food stalls with two people, Honey Citrus @ Rainy Day and Sakuranomiya Alice. Personally, I liked that some of the chairs in the venue looked like school chairs. I bought shangpin and okonomiyaki and ate them. It tasted festival and was delicious! okonomiyaki was asked by the clerk, "Is mayonnaise okay?" When I replied, he added more mayonnaise than I expected. You did it. At the festival of Oyachi Shrine, they also hold events on stage, such as band performances, folk songs and Japanese drum performances, hula dances, games, and bingo tournaments, so I would like to see them next year. This year, I couldn't go to the festival at all due to my poor health on a rainy day and the busyness of Alice Sakuranomiya, but since there are various festival in various places in Hokkaido, the two of us said, "I want to go to various festival next year."

The Oi Shrine Grand Festival is also called the "Obi Festival" and is a festival in which the god of Oi Shrine returns to the old shrine site (inn) once every three years. Today, for three days including the second Sunday in October, a gorgeous festival is held in the town of Shimada where dainu, daimyo processions, Kashima odori, street stall dances from 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue, and ground dances are held. Especially on the last day, all of them form a large procession together with the mikoshi procession, and they slowly parade for a whole day for a round trip of about 4 km from Oi Shrine to the inn. Due to the appearance and swing of the dainu at this time, as well as the unique form of Kashima Odori, the obi festival has come to be counted as one of the three strange festival in Japan. In addition, since the Edo period, first-class entertainers from Edo have been invited to choreographed dances in each town, Nagauta, and shamisen, and Nagauta in particular is also called "Nagauta Festival" because the iemoto of each school competed for throat.

The 40th Murakoshima Festival*** Participatory events for stage performances. The "Mura Koshima Festival" full of plans was very exciting thanks to you! !! Due to the rain forecast, it was held indoors this year. I was very happy that many people from inside and outside the village came to visit. ↓ We will introduce some of the contents of the festival ↓ ――The opening was colored by the local brass band junior high school Nishikobu. The recorder playing by the first and second graders is probably because they usually play brass instruments. I felt comfortable with a very beautiful tone. ● In the "woodcutter competition" that is held every year A project in which four people compete in pairs to cut logs with a saw. This year, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the event, they chose a log with a diameter of 40 cm. Both the cheering voices and the moderator's commentary were enthusiastic. ●Another participatory project was implemented for the first time this year. "Blindfolded Milk Perfect Chu-Chu-! Competition" 🐄 Blindfolded challengers aim to match the specified number of grams It is a competition to drink grass-fed milk, which is a specialty of Nishiokoppe. While not seeing, while anticipating the remaining amount The sight of the challengers drinking milk seriously was surreal and interesting. -The trio of the stage performance was enka singer Kenji Niinuma. Gentle voices echoed throughout the venue, and it was a spectacular stage. Just recently, I was listening to "Headlights" with my grandmother. It was exciting to hear her singing live. ********************************** The seasons change, but there are signs of events after autumn ...

It's not a summer festival, but... We filmed Hiroshima's traditional event "Touro Flow" Touro Float is a traditional event in Hiroshima City to commemorate the victims of the atomic bomb and pray for peace. My great-grandfather was an A-bomb victim. I am a fourth-generation A-bomb survivor. Even now, after the death of my grandparents, I still carry on my thoughts and play it every year. This year, for the first time in four years, the regular event has been held, and the "hand-flowing touro" that you can play yourself has also been revived. I can't call it a festival, but I post it because it was a memorial service. Colorful lanterns with 😌☘️🕊 thoughts of peace from all over the world

Kagawa Prefecture Megijima "Sumiyoshi Shrine Grand Festival" festival dedicated to the god of the island – The shrine festival at Megijima island There is a surprisingly unknown island culture Kagawa Prefecture and in Takamatsu City Megijima and Ogijima take turns holding a summer festival every year, carrying a drum stand made of ropes handed down in Isshi Sōden and parading around the island. As the name suggests, the god of the island is a woman, and it has been handed down as a festival forbidden to women since ancient times so as not to be jealous. Drum stands are dropped and rolled wildly toward the gods, and at the end of the festival, the drum stands go into the sea. It seemed difficult to go through the small torii gate.
