Yassa Matsuri, Wakamiya Hachiman-gu Shrine, Minakami-machi, Gunma

24th September, 2016 | Wakamiya Hachiman-gu Shrine, Minakami-machi, Gunma
Festival with a 400-year history. Youths wearing loin-clothes jostle each other in the shrine precincts, shouting "Yassa, yassa," and vie with one another climbing up the pillars to be the first getting the bell attached to the top of the ceiling in the shrine.
