Ushioni Festival
牛鬼祭り

  • Festivals

Ushioni is a festival car covered with hemp palm or red cloth and a cow modelled the neck and head of the ogre

and a sword made with a log.

The festival car is carried up by dozens of young people and is accompanied

by the sound of the musical instrument of the bamboo

which children blow and parade while swinging a neck having a long neck to shove every house,

and to exorcise evil spirits. It is pleasant to see such unique festival.

It is held on July 22-24 every year.
