Fukuoka’s most beloved festival, Yamakasa. From 7/1 you can see the decorative floats at 13 locations including Kushida Shrine and the neighborhoods of Hakata. The climax begins at 4:59 am on 7/15 when thousands of loincloth-clad men race through the streets carrying heavy floats with shouts of “Oisa-oisa!”

We will do a YouTube live on Kyushu Live. You can watch it anytime you like after the live.
