A festival with 50 years of history, this event involves carrying a large wooden symbol of manhood through the streets. Young women and women staying in the area are welcome to ride it. This festival embodies the desire to ward off evil, find a partner, and have children. Sake and miso soup are served and onlookers can also enjoy a taiko performance and food stalls.
