Akasaki Jinja Reisai

Akasaki Jinja Reisai Yamaguchi (Sept.)

Akasaki Jinja Reisai is a matsuri in which dances are offered to give thanks for divine blessings, and to pray for bumper crop harvests. Around 400 years ago, cattle and horses were struck down by a plague. It ended when the people prayed to the god of agriculture and livestock enshrined at Akasaki Shrine. They offered a dance to give thanks to the deity, and the matsuri began. Since then, Shiki Sanbaso, Gaku Odori and Yumoto Nanjo Odori dances have been performed. It is a nationally designated Important Tangible Folk Cultural Property.
