Hyoge Festival

Hyoge Festival

Many people say the origin of this festival was to praise the achievement of Heiroku Yanobe who constructed a new pond to resolve the water shortage during the Edo period; to appreciate water and its good fortune; and to pray for a good harvest.  
Participants put on swords which are made of sliced pumpkins with an aroid stem. They parade in the town coloring their faces with bright red and blue paints.
