  • As with other attractions we saw in Akita Prefecture whilst on a cruise ship day stop - it was lovely to see the Shrine - as with all the Shrines in Japan - well cared for and busy. However, was good ...  more »
  • Namahage waited Akita travel planned to go to the Festival. Japan Sea side during snow storm warning is the plane managed to land. Hotels in Akita plase, Jr to OGA. OGA is cheap 500 yen shuttle clean. I make haunts reproduction houses come namahage namahage Museum next to the first purchased ticket, go to shinzan shrine. It is a hit more people than can not rain nor wind, best sights date (so firmly are piled snow preparation is needed). Watch next to the shrine in ceremonies, performing moves descent from Mt. drum, next to the stage and the namahage fire around and around (note direction to foil by spark! ) Of the can be seen in nearby. There are food stalls, OGA also hope. Also to watch until the end can get 10 minutes to JR.

  • 18:00 take the hotel's shuttle bus and within walking distance from the parking lot near the shrine, very many people that gathered was! I don't know, but I got a Festival brochure, at first I saw what if. An overview is venue in round 5 ceremony 6 photo shoot with 1 careful synthesis 2. demonstrate 3 drum 4 torches. It was waiting for from 1 to 5 crowd in the freezing cold just just time pass. Announcements by the local dialect is the worst. I don't know if the locals in its humorous narratives and what was happening laugh never heard spoken we tourists try, what you say at all. Cold and often invisible Word's meaning unclear and, annoyingly, on this without. Such a State is an hour and a half remained. Around us has been feeling "had not come?", as the last event was 6 photo shoot. Situation couldn't namahage 22 bodies in place--women, approaching it from a pretty friendly according to the photo shoot me now. I think from the beginning and only photo session were so satisfied. At Yara played watched from a distance, and then stood and waited ago photo sessions with the namahage is. Were pleased with it as well as their own, and also many other tourists were snapping photos of namahage. During their struggle to tourists and the namahage Festival ends. "To really come," thought so from the heart. And "namahage Festival is interesting" and it was very fulfilling night want to advertise.

  • A little back of the namahage Museum. Near the first ~ parking lot until the third location, walking from there. Shinzan shrine located there, hear "namahage comes on new year's Eve from the mayama" when you visited the namahage Museum and Museum had become concerned about. So our first visit of the year decide OGA shinzan shrine (^ _ ^) ♪ visits to go looking for the amulet and embroidered expected Street Hero (namahage) in enough amulet bag! Cool (^ ^) v and especially katsumori scathing namahage's. ' Get over any rough "and says there is, as the name suggests. Have watched namahage's year, this year I decided (* ́ω ' *)

  • OGA namahage will talk to shinzan shrine, because the namahage demon, not the messengers of God came down from the mayama and Motoyama (surface mount)... it is. February famous namahage purple lights Festival is held every year. And then ransacked the Office through a Deva gate and sells amulets, to pray at the shrine (the sanctuary). Just because home is fine, but the other? (Seems the Ganesha statues are enshrined), temple building is decorated Portable Shrine donated by Yakushi (remnants of the new schools multiple times), the satake clan and 歓喜天 Kaya of the 1,000 year old trees (prefecture designated cultural asset). Etc. Go to the mountaintop is further afield, climbed up on the road next to the Yakushi okumiya (main hall), but is likely take over one hour. Also, the related to the legend of the namahage deep ' v DW "also you can go. Akita beautiful Office woman wanted to ask questions, and please tell me kindly. The grounds sells namahage talismans and amulets. Must also take a pictures put namahage masks and knives. Said to be opened in the case and write this tourist place is actually a downward to OGA sukune, the reign of the Emperor (yamatotakernomicoto's father) (i.e. the mythical age? ), Seems very old shrine. Not limited to shinzan shrine in Akita originate from the old shrine, is amazing.
