Takewari (Bamboo Smashing) Festival

11:00 - 12:00

This “Bamboo Smashing Festival” is a festival based on an extermination legend of a large snake. Young people in white clothes gather in the temple halls and grounds and smash poles of bamboo by throwing them into the ground. They also throw a large rope that is supposed to represent a serpent into the river. People take home the broken bamboo shards and use them to make chopsticks, which is supposed to bless the family with health.
