Shitara-Town [Only Shrine Rituals Held]
Shimizu Chochin Lantern Festival
Date : 06/30/2020
Only shrine rituals to be held in 2020.
This is a kind of “Gion Matsuri” festival said to be modeled after the utterly famous lanterns of the Tsushima Tenno Festival, in the city of Tsushima. For ages, festivals using the “chochin” paper lanterns have been a tradition around the eastern Aichi Prefecture area deep within the mountains known as the Okumikawa area. However, not all of them have been transmitted down for generations with so much passion as this.
