Fukuoka Local Customs: 20 reviews and 33 photos
Tamaseseri, a lively New Year’s Festival held on January 3, in Hakozaki Shrine in Fukuoka-city, and is a traditional form of fortune-telling.
Several hundred men wearing lion cloths compete on piggy-back in two teams, the “sea” team and the “land” team” team, for possession of a wooden ball.
If the sea team wins, a bountiful fishing catch is predicted for the year; if the land team wins a rich harvest is predicted.
