Overview
More
The festival affectionately referred to as the "Shonoki" has been held since the Edo period in order to pray for a bumper harvest. It is held annually, for four days in May, at the Inazumi Shrine in Otamachi, Kofu City, Yamanashi Prefecture. After Shinto rituals such as an offertory sumo tournament, the performance of festival music, and offertory drum playing have been completed, local organizations and others perform a variety of local performing arts. More than 220 shops, lined up one next to the other, offer opportunities to enjoy inexpensive food, old-fashioned games such as target practice and ring toss, and more, while a specially built stage hosts a variety of events, such as karaoke competitions and ballad shows. There is also an old-fashioned plant market, thronged with visitors seeking to buy seeds and seedlings.
