Minamichita-Town [Cancelled in 2021]
Toyohama Tai Matsuri, The Sea Bream Festival
(Toyohama Tai Matsuri)
Date : July(The last ten days)
The 2021 Toyohama Tai Matsuri has been cancelled.
There's Something Fishy Going on in Minamichita!
Picture this: giant land-based sea bream, around 18 meters long and 6 meters high, charging and attacking each other in clouds of sand while being chased by near-naked men, before returning to the sea, where they splash and bob about!
Is it a Godzilla-like movie remake of JAWS? A giant fish version of King Kong? No, it's the annual Tai Matsuri, or Sea Bream Festival, held to pray for maritime safety and an abundant catch.
