Each summer the Omuta Daijayama Festival attracts over 400,000 people who come to Fukuoka prefecture to celebrate an old legend dating back over a thousand years. Hundreds of volunteers turn out to pull the dashi which are all over 10 meters long. Over ten dragon floats parade through the main streets in Omuta. The crowd is overwhelmed by the high level of energy and intensity of the Matsuri. When the Daija spit their fire, spectators will be energized. There is excitement and joy. Intense emotions are stirred all at once. (*reference: omuta kankoukyoukai) official website ›› http://www.omuta-daijayama.com/
