 This time, I introduce festivals and souvenirs.

Here is a large shrine that has a history over 1000 years and has conducted two fire festivals.

 When I went into the precinct, many flying carps had been fluttering by breeze of May.

The main shrine is visible to the back.





Sagicho festival and Hachimann festival

 A decoration of a dragon at infographic topping was used with a portable shrine(Mikoshi) like left photo in Sagicho festival.

Surprisingly the material of this dragon is many dry sardines( Tazukuri).


Right photo is burning torches of Hachimann festival.

Both festivals always finish with the fire festival at the last, and have been annually held in March and April, spring. 

The fire has what excites people.

The people wished good luck and charmed against bad luck.

 Taneya is an established shop of Japanese sweets, and Club-Harie is a cake shop.

These two shops were highly visible along the approach to the shrine.






< souvenirs >

 Although a funa-zushi is famous as a souvenir of Lake Biwa, I am not good at this fermented food.

The amber food that has boiled down small fish by soy sauce is delicious.
