Event

Conducted by Warei-jinja Shrine on Uwajima City, Ehime Prefecture, the Ushi-oni Festival is a Shinto ritual to ward away misfortune as well as a summer festival and is considered one of the three greatest festivals on the island of Shikoku. Thrilling events are held over the three days of the festival, enwrapping the area in an energy-filled atmosphere. The festival starts with the Gaiya Carnival, a parade of dynamic group dances. This is followed by events such as the Ushi-Oni Parade, in which gaint ushi-oni (bull-ogre figures) and traditional parade floats tour the city to stirring cries; a bull fighting competition; fireworks display; and three traditional portable shrines event in which teams climb a pole to protect their shrines.

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
