BullfightsThis is a competition where bulls weighing nearly a ton collide in a test of strength. This event is a tradition so old that it was described in Bakin Takizawa's Nansou Satomi Hakkenden. It stems from a Shinto ritual and in former times, women and bereaved persons were not allowed to enter the bullfighting arena. The bull fights are unique in Honshu and have been designated as an important intangible national cultural asset.
