一昨年の子供御輿 幼若演技 ⇒
Every year, when August is coming on, people in Akita city gets butterflies in their stomach because it is a season of the Kanto Festival. This festival, an essential part of people’s life in Akita, has been held every year since Edo period praying for huge harvest of rice and other crops. In this season, you can find on many streets in the city that people from kids to old, men and women, are gathering and practicing to rise up tall Kanto poles with many lanterns and play Japanese traditional drum and flute.
Very unfortunately, the festival was canceled this year due to COVID19. However, people in the city are hanging lanterns with each commune’s crest on its street or under the eaves believing that we can have this beautiful festival next year. We, Kane-en Omachi shop, which is located just on the corner of Kanto street, puts also a small Kanto pole in our shop with sincere hope of peaceful and healthy days of the world and Akita city.
Please come to our shop to see and enjoy this small Kanto Festiva l!!!
