Shitara-Town Sanzoro Festival (Sanzoro Matsuri)

Date : 11/09/2019

  • Sanzoro Festival (Sanzoro Matsuri)

A traditional festival with plenty of charm!

Held annually on the second Saturday of November at the Tsushima Shrine grounds, the Sanzoro Festival of Shitara-Town features the Seven Lucky Gods (Shichifukujin) dancing around the hot water bowl placed at the center of the open area. For over 400 years, this traditional event has been passed down the generations and, although there is no discernible pattern in the gods' dances, the customary stopping for questioning and answering is an always-present feature. The "Sanzoro" of the festival's name comes from this almost comical inquiring.

  • Access by public transport
    Access by public transport
    From Toyohashi Station, take the JR Iida Line and alight at Hon-Nagashino Station, then take the Toyotetsu Bus and get off at Damine (田峯). Get off at Damine and take the Odekake-Kitara Bus (Mitsuhashi-Toyokuni Line 三都橋豊邦線), get off at Oritate (折立) and walk 3 min northwards.
    *: Odekake-Kitara Bus at Damine departs only twice at 4:28 PM and 6:08 PM, with Oritate departure for the way back at 5:25 PM. This makes it almost impossible to use the buses and as such, guests who must use public transportation means are encouraged to move by taxi from Hon-Nagashino Station, reserving another taxi to pick-up at Tsushima Shrine later in the night in order to make the way back.
  • Access by car
    Access by car
    Approx. 35 min (22 km) northwards from Shinshiro I.C. of the Shin-Tomei Expressway via routes 151, 257, and 420.
