Sagicho Matsuri at Himure Hachimangu Shrine, Shiga

Sagicho Matsuri at Himure Hachimangu Shrine, Shiga

16th & 17th March, 2019 | at Himure Hachimangu Shrine, Shiga
Big floats are ignited with fire one after the other and men wearing make-up dance wildly.   
On Sunday evening in mid-March, people dance excitedly amid showers of fire sparks around the blazing Sagicho floats. This explains why this festival is also called the Omihachiman no Hi-matsuri (Omihachiman Shrine fire festival).
