Kumo-Gassen (battle of spiders) at Kajiki Town, Aira City, Kagoshima
15th June, 2014 | at Kajiki Town, Aira City, Kagoshima
The Kumo Gassen is an annual traditional event in Kajiki town, the most famous spider-fighting contest: this event has a long and unbroken tradition and dates back to four hundred years ago. Most people in Kajiki rear samurai spiders: all the spiders in the event are female Black and Yellow Argiopes.
Spiders are raised carefully and live with their owners, free to wander in the house and make cobwebs as they please. (*reference: Wiki)
