This year’s Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival organizers announced guidelines for infection prevention measures and decided to require participants to undergo health checks. The traditional summer festival “Hakata Gion Yamakasa” will run the regular events, including the Kaki-Yamakasa will be held. The guidelines require participants to fill out a check sheet two weeks before the event to ensure no abnormalities in their body temperature or physical condition. In addition, they require that they either receive a vaccine or be tested for the new coronavirus. The committee has decided to allow participants to take off their masks while carrying the floats.
