Plenty of positive energy

The Hana Festival is held annually in areas around the town of Toei and has continued for more than 700 years. It is even designated a national important intangible folk cultural property.
A document dating back to 1806 indicates that the Shimo-Awashiro Hana Festival is the oldest in the area, and the religious rites are said to be carried out just as they had been ages ago.
The festival prays for the spirits which have gone dormant in the winter earth to come back to life, and is thus held at the coldest time of the year. The locals are ardent in passing on the festival and its traditions; a desire which keeps the festival alive and well today.
