My boy is learning Asian geography. He asked what, exactly, the people are doing here. =)
During autumn, locals have a festival to commemorate the yearly harvest… The pics show chosas being lifted and spun around by community members. The chosa is believed to be a vehicle transporting the deity. On the day of the festival, parades are held between the main shrine and other sections of the community… Your son may also want to google: Niihama Taiko Matsuri. That festival is very big and usually sees chosa fights where they are rammed against each other. Fun, but dangerous..
