Shanshan Matsuri (Umbrella Dance Festival) in Tottori Pref.

Shanshan Matsuri (Umbrella Dance Festival) in Tottori Pref.

13th - 15th August, 2016 | in Tottori Pref.  
The Shan-Shan Festival is the largest festival in Tottori. For its main attraction, about 4,000 participants perform the dance.
The origin is said to be a ritual rain-making dance carried on for centuries.
The bells attached to the umbrellas make the sound of "shan-shan," so the dance was named the Shan-Shan Umbrella Dance.
