Owara Kaze no Bon

Owara Kaze no Bon Toyama (Sept.)

Owara Kaze no Bon is a folk song ritual of Etchuyatsuo. It has a history of over 300 years. Songs and dances are performed on the 210th day of the Japanese calendar, which has traditionally been considered to be the day when typhoons strike. People pray to appease typhoons and for bumper crop harvests. The traditional streets are lit by paper lanterns, and men and women in straw hats dance gracefully to the melancholic kokyu fiddle and the romantic tone of the shamisen. This is Toyama's most famous matsuri, and it is visited by over 200,000 people every year.
