The Oyster Festival is held at Kashimae Bay. There are several miniature grills set up for people to use to cook oysters. There are vendors on the pier selling bags of oysters, coals for the fire, necessary appliances for grilling and of course beer. If you like grilled oysters and beer you'd love this. The festival happens in February, but they do a smaller version of it in November which is when I went. It went down on the weekend and was well worth going. I'll definitely be there for a few of the days in February if we're in port.
Me at the entrance to Kashimae's Shrine
It's another shrine around the Sasebo area. It's not very big at all. I'm guessing people go there to wish for good luck when they go fishing. It looks like the God's at this shrine are a little thirsty since there are a good amount of empty beer bottles laying around.
The Shrine is the place where people go to speak with the God's. They first go inside and wash their hands and mouth so they are clean when they speak with the Gods. Then they pay their donation, ring a bell in order to wake them up and make their wish. It's a pretty interesting sight to see if you've never been to a shrine. Definitely worth at least one visit.

Kashimae Bay is a nice place to go with friends or family. You can hang out at the beach, do some shopping, or take a tour of the 99 islands around Sasebo. They also have the oyster festival here ever February.
