from 10/14 '20 to 10/15 '20
※Due to the coronavirus concerns, Nada Fighting Festival has been canceled in 2020. Only the ritual will be held. Please check the official website.
Nada Fighting Festival is an autumn festival held annually in October at Matsubara-Hachiman Shrine in Himeji City. This festival is one of the most popular fighting festivals in Japan.
The highlight of the festival is the 3 mikoshi(portable shrine)'s "fighting" and the 7 festival floats' parade throughout the town. Mikoshi shrines carried by half-naked men strike each other as bumping and jostling, and that battle scene is super intense!
Nada Fighting Festival is designated as an important intangible folk cultural property and has become known throughout the country as well as overseas.

It was a nice enough & large shrine but I was disappointed cause there was no-one there, to ask for goshuin.

It was a pity this year, but the Nada no Kenka Matsuri was canceled, but there is a stall kneading ground in front of this Yawata Shrine. It is a magnificent building. Why don't you go to worship, tour, and inspection at an early opportunity? How is it ❗️

Matsubara Hachiman Shrine, Matsubara Hachiman Shrine, which is said to have a pine forest like millet overnight, is a shrine that is full of prosperous dignity and love with Ujiko. 💞
On March 1, a new life, Ujiko, had been visiting the shrine with the whole family. The ancestors and ancestors have the blood of Ogami of Matsubara Hachiman Shrine.
I wish you good luck with your new life. 💖
