Hachinohe Sansha Festival is the largest festival in Hachinohe region with a history and tradition of 300 years. It is held annually between July 31 and August 4. As one of the Important Intangible Folk Cultural Properties of Japan, Hachinohe Sansha Festival captivates its visitors with 27 great ornate floats, a procession of mikoshi(portable shrines), and toramai(tiger dance).
On On August 2nd, the peak of the festival, the event of Kagami-style Kiba Dakyu is held at the Chojasan Shinra Shrine.
Kiba Dakyu is a form of traditional martial arts performed on horseback which has only three forms left in Japan. The Kagami-style Kiba Dakyu of Hachinohe is designated as an Aomori Prefectural Intangible Folk Cultural Property. Kiba Dakyu is similar to polo, two teams (red and white) with four riders each compete to score against the other team. Riders use sticks with a net on one end to hurl a ball in their goal to score.

八戸市に鎮座する神社

午後5時頃の参拝で御朱印無理だろうと思いつつ社務所に宮司さんいらっしゃったのでお声がけした所、快く御朱印授かりました🙏

達筆の素敵な御朱印でした✨

龗神社(おがみじんじゃ/ogamijinja)。訪ねた時、管理されている方がもくもくと落葉の掃除をされていました。写真撮影OKか確認したところ、良いですよとパンフレットもくださいました。消防殉職者鎮魂之碑があるのも印象的。
場所は八戸市庁の近くです。JR本八戸(ほんはちのへ)駅からは徒歩5分の所にあります。

鎮守の森も都市開発でなくなりましたが、神楽が有名な神社です。お守りに神楽の獅子があります。お土産としてもよいです。
