Overview
More
In 1953, a shopping arcade in Kiyomizu, Shizuoka assumed a central role in starting this festival as a means of reconstruction after the war and of promoting commerce. Colorful bamboo decorations crafted by children line the streets around Kiyomizu Ginza, Kiyomizu Station Ginza, the arcades, and local businesses. Today, this event is a harbinger of summer in Kiyomizu. During the event, the local deity is transported from Oshiba Shrine to Tanata Shrine, a shrine in the Ginza arcade in front of Kiyomizu Station. People throng to donate small sheafs of paper inscribed with a wish. There is also a competition for the best bamboo decoration, and a Kiyomizu original, the Chibi Maruko-chan Festival.
