The Hadaka Matsuri is a Japanese festival which celebrates the blessings of a bountiful harvest, prosperity and fertility.
The festival evolved from a ritual that started 500 years ago during the Muromachi Period (1338-1573). The traditional garb for the Hadaka Matsuri is the white loincloth.
Visitors come from all across Japan and a few from abroad to take part. An event not to be missed!
