Honen Matsuri (Penis Festival)
March 15, 2018

Honen Matsuri literally means “fertility festival”, and what’s more fertile than parading a 280kg, 2.5 meter long wooden penis through your town? That was a rhetorical question, by the way. Worth going to get a blessing if you are trying to grow something. Takes place at the Tagata Shrine, a short walk from the eponymous
Tagatajinjamae Station on the Meitetsu Komaki Line.
