The Okumakabuto Matsuri is most unique on the Noto Peninsula.
Huge banners (wakubata), animated dancing, and the distinctive rhythms of gongs and drums express old relationships with the Korea Peninsula.
It is said that visitors from the other side of the Japan Sea brought with them the gods of the Kumakabuto Arakashihito shrine, which worships Arakashihiko no kami and Tsunega-arashito no kami.
