58th Omuta Daijayama Festival

START: Jul 27, 2019 END: Jul 28, 2019

Daija means “large snake” and at this festival, floats in the image of snakes (10-meter long, 5-meter tall and weighing 3 tons) will be paraded around town. Placing a child inside the mouth of a Daija supposedly grants sound health for one year. It’s better if the child cries! Don’t miss the group dance of 10,000 people on Jul. 27 (5:50 p.m.), and watch out for the finale when the 13 Daija floats come together in a marvelous parade.
