Nishio-City Omanto Festival (Omanto Matsuri) - Nishio-City

Date : 10/20/2019


  • Omanto Festival (Omanto Matsuri) - Nishio-City

A festival dedicated annually on the third Sunday of October at the Nakahata Hachiman-sha Shrine of Nishio-City. An ancient tradition that celebrates the adulthood of the young men of the area, and also part of the folklore of Aichi that uses horses as the theme of the festivals.

Omanto Festival (Omanto Matsuri) - Nishio-City

Also known as "Zuri-Uma", for the sight of the youngsters running along the horses circulating freely inside the temporary round course built on the grounds of the shrine. A complete run around the circuit is equivalent to about 120 meters, and in that short run, the debuting young adults of the surrounding neighborhoods will try to literally grab the big fortune symbolized as running on the horse's mount.
