Festivals of Kakunodate


Following 350 years of tradition, the three days of September 7th through 9th are the festivals of the Shinmei and Yakushido shrines. Young men pull floats through the town-and whenever two floats meet, in order to determine which will proceed first, the bearers throw all their strength into driving the floats together in a massive collision. In contrast, participants can also admire graceful dancing accompanied by traditional Japanese music and marvel at the extravagantly decorated dolls. These are festivals of beauty and might combined.
