Feast days

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ... and Spring. The Japanese calendar celebrates the festive seasons with ancient rituals. An intense moment shared by all.

Festivals and ceremonies are marks by which Japanese live their lives. Matsuri - festivals on fixed dates - are held according to local beliefs and nature's spirits. Associated with the kami of Shinto or Buddhist deities, matsuri shows off incredible processions of odori (dances) among other spectacles, to live a unique experience collectively.
