Plenty of Positive Energy at This Festival

Held annually from November to March at several locations of the Okumikawa area, the Hana Festivals are an ancient tradition of over 700 years that have been appointed as Important National Intangible Cultural Folkloric Heritages. At the Shimoawashiro Hamlet, a document dating to 1806 is the key to its procedures and the oldest record of its history, guiding the way it is carried out. It is believed that the blessed spirits of the land are in repose on the earth, and thus the cold season is chosen to "revive" them. The townsfolk are ardent in what concerns the preservation and transmission of its values to younger generations.
