Overview
More
This event is held every year on July 31st in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture at Ohama Park, and it is emblematic of summer. It is said to have originated from a fish market that stood along the Ohama coast when, as part of the Nagoshi Harae purification ceremony, local fishermen would make offerings of fish before the altar while the portable shrine was carried in a procession to Shukuindo Tongu Shrine in Sakai. Though it has been halted by wars and other adverse circumstances, this traditional event dates to the Kamakura period, continuing for more than 700 years. The lively auctions that start at 7:00 PM are popular, and the rows of night shops and company booths are crowded with as many as 200,000 visitors in a typical year.
