    Looked like a nice enough classic introductory video. Reminded me of Charlie Chaplin.

    A glimpse of Kashima Shinto-ryu swordsmanship ceremony at a Shinto Shrine.

    1. YouTube - ??????/?
    2. YouTube - ??????/?

    It kind of shows how these swordsman feel about their pursuit of swordsmanship.
    For them it is a spiritual pursuit as well as a physical one.

    Ombashira Festival

    Some of our most dangerous festivals.
    If you thought getting chased by bulls was rough, try riding huge logs down hill.

    YouTube - Ombashira Festival 2004 - Kiotoshi#1
    YouTube - Logriding Race in Japan (best views)
    YouTube - Onbashira Festival, Nagano, Japan (finale)



    There are many huge and very different festivals in Japan, which I look forward to posting.

    Saidaiji (buddhist temple) festival

    YouTube - 2008' ???????????????ver2

    The goal of this festival is to get a hold of a piece of wood, and bring it back to the goal point against what looks like thousands. In accomplishing that good fortune is blessed. Look at all the confusion like everyone`s like "who`s got it?", "you got it? give it to me!!". The guys in blue hats and the one`s calling out control freak-like announcements are the police. Obviously this festival has been toned down lately.

    Nada Kenka(fight) festival.

    The easiest way to describe this would be that probably towns arrive with their ark-like boxes and then they bash the arks together to prove who`s tougher.
