What happens at the Hounen Matsuri Festival?
The festival is deeply rooted in Japanese folklore. It began as an appeal to the gods for a fruitful harvest. March 15th marks the beginning of spring, a time of rebirth and growth. \
On this day, locals dressed in Buddhist robes carry floats through the centre of town praying for a good harvest and childbirth. The main float consists of a two and a half metre wooden phallus, which is carried from one shrine to another. In the Shinto belief, newly made objects flow with life, thus a new phallus is carved every year from a Japanese cypress tree. It is a gift to the female deity of agricultural fertility, Tamahime-no-mikoyo. The float is carried by men all aged 42. This age is considered unlucky for men, a superstition rooted in Chinese culture. Carrying the gift to the agricultural deity is believed to consecrate the men of that hapless age.
