I got new leaflets yesterday.
"The 45th Otaru Ushio Festival".
It will be held on 29th to 31st of July.
Otaru becomes really crowded with a large number of people.
The parade of powerful portable shrine with lots of people who are in happi coat is a great spectacle.
Actually, everyone can join the parade of "Ushio Nerikomi".
"Ushio Nerikomi" is a dance parade, in which a lot of local men and women of all ages take part.
This parade will be held on 30th of July.
If your group consists of below 5 people, you'll be able to join it without prior application.
I would like you to enjoy "Otaru Ushio Festival"!!
I'll post about it again :)
