Tobata Gion Oyamagasa Festival Cancelled

The festival in Kitakyushu City has been canceled again. The festival, held every July in Tobata Ward, Kitakyushu City, is a festival in which four “pyramids of light” stacked with 309 lanterns come together in one place. The festival was canceled two years in a row due to the corona epidemic. The general meeting in April confirmed that the festival would be held after thorough infection control measures were taken. However, according to the secretariat of the promotion committee, the board of directors decided to cancel the festival at a meeting held on May 31. Source: KBC
