Sunakake Matsuri (Sand Fighting Festival)


This rice planting festival prays for grain richness though the form of sand-fighting. To pray for rain to bring successful harvest, people throw sand at each other at this Sunakake (Sand-spreading) Matsuri. Regardless the reason, it’s a lot of fun and quite messy.
