Aizen Festival

From to

This is a festival praying for the prevention of disease, an idea that stems from the intention of Mahayana Buddhism, which stated, “I want to relieve people of suffering and sadness” 1400 years ago. Long ago, plague epidemic became quite common in the summer, so the law ordains that this festival will be carried out in the summer, to prevent the town from getting sick.  The girls of the town all wear their yukata in this lively procession. It is also called the Yukata Festival because people start wearing yukatas around this season.
