Noto Kiriko Festival

About

Projecting into the Japan Sea, Noto Peninsula is ‘Treasure Box of Festivals’ because folk events have been handed down for generations since ancient times. ‘Kiriko festivals’ are the biggest events of all. Accompanying portable shrines, gigantic festival lanterns called Kiriko are carried by the parishoners. This type of festivals can be seen only in Noto, and are held in more than one hundred-ten area from early July to late September, therefore the existing number of Kiriko reaches about 800. Festivals of each area are very distinctive; At ‘Abare Festival’ of Noto town, Kiriko and portable shrines literally go into rampage. While Kiriko are carried into the sea at ‘Okinami-Tairyo-a large catch of fish in the sea-Festival’ in Anamizu town, a number of Kiriko gorgeously decorated with Wajima lacquer parade through Wajima City at ‘Wajima Great Featival’. Please come and see our majestic festivals unique to Noto region.
