Yayoi Festival

  • Shinkyo Bridge 山内2301 nikko japan

The Yayoi Festival Nikko is for the beginning of spring.

Yayoi means March on the ancient Japanese calendar.

Portable shrines will be moved with much effort up the slope to Futarasan shrine.

It is hoped that with such effort the reward of good fortune for the coming year will be plentiful.

It is a beautiful festival with so much spring color.
