Anba Matsuri

Anba Matsuri Fukushima (Feb.)

Anba Matsuri is a traditional ritual to pray for bumper crops and fish hauls, and safety at sea. It is said to have started in the Edo period. After the Great East Japan Earthquake and nuclear accident of 2011, it was held on a smaller scale at the place of evacuation, however, in 2018 it was held at its normal location. During the matsuri, kagura, or sacred dance, is performed by the performing arts conservation society, and dancers, who are mainly children, offer a rice-planting dance to pray for bumper crops.
