Today’s Holiday:Saidai-ji Eyo Hadaka Matsuri

Today’s Holiday:
Saidai-ji Eyo Hadaka Matsuri

Hadaka Matsuri means, literally, “naked festival”. The young men who participate are naked except for traditional white loincloths known as fundoshi. Sometimes the participants in Hadaka Matsuri immerse themselves in a river beforehand to purify themselves. Occasionally several semi-naked young men will carry a mikoshi, or portable shrine, in the form of a horse, rice bale, or sake barrel into the river with them.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
