On the evening of 3rd March, the Naked Pushing Festival held in snow exceeding 1m is counted as one of the three biggest festivals in Japan.
In recent years it is designated as "Selective Intangible Folklore Cultural Property of the Country" and it is a festival with a history for about 1200 years.
We began to gather to worship Bishamonten, and the crowd of naked upper body push together with the call of "Sanyo, Sanyo!", and the Bishamonten which is at a higher place, you can push and try to worship at a closer place. Also, a large candle, so called, "big candle festival" which weights about 30 kg will be litted.
General public can join the pushing event. (However, men only)
