Overview
More
Held for over 300 years at the Hagurosan Shrine, the Bonten Matsuri is dedicated to asking the Buddhist Deva Bonten for a bountiful grain harvest. The festival is held in the springtime on May 5 and in autumn on November 23 & 24, with the latter considered to be particularly magnificent. Young men in white happi coats carry 17 m-high effigies of Bonten on bamboo poles, waving them up & down and shouting in spirited voices as they make the journey on foot to Hagurosan Shrine.
