Japan Local Customs: 477 reviews and 616 photos

During the months of JULY and August, there are countless local festivals in Japan because almost every shrine has its own one.

Most festivals are held on an annual basis and celebrate events like the coming of the farming season, the harvest, or they commemorate historical events.

A festival may be held over several days.

Dont miss these, they are free and fun to see the local custom....
