Boze God Mask Festival, Akuseki Island, Tokara Village, Kagoshima

16th August, 2019 | Akuseki Island, Tokara Village, Kagoshima
Boze Matsuri, Akusekijima. A local variant of Japan's Bon festival, held yearly on the 16th of July in the old calendar -- meaning sometime between August and September. The island's men dress up in bizarre, spectacular costumes made of palm leaves and husk, representing the Masked God Boze, and dance to scare away the devils and bring in a new year.   (*reference: Wiki)   official website ››  http://www.tokara.jp/profile/akuseki.html
