Guzuyaki Matsuri (fire festival), Kaga City, Ishikawa Pref.

22nd - 24th August, 2014 | Kaga City, Ishikawa Pref.
Local young men spend a week constructing a giant Guzu Fish. Building materials consist of wood, bamboo, and straw. The Guzu fish stretches to about 7 or 8 meters. The Guzu is then marched in a parade, heading for the local shrine where it is set on fire in a traditional ceremonial burning.   (*reference: STEPPING STONES ISHIKAWA)   official website ››  http://www.yataya.co.jp/08/event08-2
