Myoken Taisai (Summer Festival), Chiba City, Chiba Pref.
16th - 22nd August, 2016 | Chiba City, Chiba Pref.
The Myoken Taisai Festival has been held every single year since 1127. The festival features the carrying of portable shrines (mikoshi) through the city before finally returning to the Chiba Shrine, led by the rhythm of a giant taiko drum, whose sound (verbalized as “daran-daran” in Japanese) is the origin for the festival’s nickname, the Daradara Festival. official website ›› http://www.chibajinja.com/540reisai.html
