Oyama Afuri Shrine Autumn Festival

Tanzawa-Oyama Area Half day 5

On Aug. 27th, the autumn ceremonies will be solemnly taken place at Oyama Afuri shrine under the prayers of gratitude offered by gathered congregations and visitors. On Aug. 28th the festival part begins, and many visitors including local congregations in Oyama town join the festival. In the late afternoon, Noh and Kyogen performances will be offered to god on the Noh stage. At night, each town brings out its own float and towns' people carry it around parading the streets. On Aug. 29th, a ritual of Kanko-sai, commonly known as Onobori (ascent), will take place. The procession will climb Mt. Oyama carrying the portable shrine which had been 'decended' to the lower shrine building at the begining of the festival, and return it to the higher shrine building, which signifies the end of the autumn festival.
