Fukui | Mihama-cho, Mikata-gun

Hassaku means August 1 according to the lunar calendar. At the Hassaku Festival of the Hiyoshi Shrine located in Shinjo, young men pray for a good harvest and run all over carrying the barrel mikoshi portable shrine and singing the Hassaku Ondo. They then dedicate it to the shrine. Moreover, the main attraction of the festival is the Riot Tengu (a long-nosed goblin). The Tengu chases after young women and children by showing “the symbol of a man” slightly from his clothes. The symbol is made of wood. It is said to be the most unusual festival in Fukui Prefecture.
