鶴亀山八幡神社 秋季例大祭

During Kametsuruyama Hachiman Shrine’s autumn festival, which is held on Sunday and Monday in the second week of October (Monday being Health and Sports Day), involves a parade of roughly 100 participants.

Otsuzumi drummers wear yuzen-dyed underclothing, armor with raised-cloth illustrations, and shaguma wigs made from long-tailed chicken feathers, creating a stunning spectacle as they dart between the old cedar trees, swap places and dance about accompanied by the resounding echoes of chiming bells and beating drums throughout the woods.
