Guzuyaki Matsuri (fire festival), Kaga City, Ishikawa Pref.
23rd - 25th August, 2019 | Kaga City, Ishikawa Pref.
Local young men spend a week constructing a giant Guzu Fish. Building materials consist of wood, bamboo, and straw. The Guzu fish stretches to about 7 or 8 meters. The Guzu is then marched in a parade, heading for the local shrine where it is set on fire in a traditional ceremonial burning.
