Overview
More
This festival is held every October 23rd-25th at the Ueno Tenjingu Shrine in Iga City, Mie Prefecture, famous as the place where ninja got their start and as the birthplace of the haiku poet Matsuo Basho. The largest festival in Iga, this event boasts more than 400 years of history and has even been designated nationally as an Important Intangible Folk-Culture Asset. At the main festival, on October 25th, the largest Shinto wand in Japan (weighing in at 120 kg), followed by a magnificently decorated portable shrine, a procession of well more than a hundred demons wearing humorously frightening masks, and nine lavishly-decorated festival floats, makes its way boisterously through the streets of the castle town to musical accompaniment.
