About this sight

This Akita Prefecture festival has a history of over 300 years and takes place every January. The festival feature bonden, so-called sacred wands made of brightly decorated poles almost four meters in length topped with a basket. During the festival, bonden are carried to the shrine, with people racing to be the first there so that their wishes will become true and the farmers can receive a good harvest.
