It will be an article post after a long time! From now on, I would like to deliver deeply enjoyable and useful information for foreigners to know the ”Kansai area” in Japan! !

Thank you in advance! !

In Japan’s Kansai area, the rainy season has been historically delayed since the beginning of the rainy season, and since July it has been raining and cloudy.

The Danjiri Festival of “Kumata Shrine” is the largest in Osaka city, and about 300,000 people come to see it every year, and there are many people who see the magnificent Danjiri with alcohol in one hand, but it is also reflected in the photo. If you wear “Happi”, which is also the formal dress of the festival, you can also follow the streetcar of that town and participate!

In the future, we would like to help you participate in “Kumata Shrine Summer Festival”. Surely, I think that foreigners can have an exciting experience that is not included in the guidebook! !


It will be the date of “Nine town joint towing”, the only opportunity for all Danjiri nines in the town to be on Osaka’s Nanko_ Street (closest station: Osaka Metro Tanimachi Line Hirano Station) from around 21:30 on December 12. Each dance competition will overwhelm visitors!

Men dance on the roof of each Danjiri, and men rush for Danjiri, and women cheer up the men with a hail.

In addition, the sound of the festival’s drums in Danjiri makes the climax a climax.

And, on the 13th, there will be the largest show “Miyairi(Enter the palace)” of “Kumata Shrine Summer Festival”!

From around 19 o’clock to around 23 o’clock, the nine Danjiri of each town will be the climax of the festival that goes through the large ”Torii” gate of the whole shrine. I think that it will surely shock the people who visited! !

Well then, I’d like to deliver on 13th this morning at this place tomorrow.

How about going to see the summer festival, one of the summer features of Japan, everyone too! ?
