Ancient Beliefs, Traditional Rituals, Spiritual Awareness, a Devil of a Time

Held annually from November to March in 15 locations of the Oku-Mikawa region, the Hana Festivals are an ancient tradition of over 700 years that have been appointed as Important National Intangible National Folkloric Heritages. At the Tsugu Hamlet, the rituals are carried out in order to ward off bad spirits, beseech abundant crops and supplicate for the village's prosperity. With 24 major performances interwoven with 39 minor numbers, the festival goes throughout the night uninterrupted.
