Esashi-Ubagami Daijingu Festival江差姥神大神宮渡御祭

Event

Boasting 370 years of history, Ubagami Daijingu shrine is said to be Hokkaido's oldest shrine. In this traditional Shinto ritual conducted by the shrine, three portable shrines and 13 yama floats are paraded around town over a three day period to pray for abundant harvests, abundant ocean catches, and good health. In the climax of the festival on the final day, the 13 yama floats are arrayed next to each other in the Shinchi-cho downtown. In addition to being considered one of the three greatest festivals in Hokkaido, it is also the only festival to be designated a Hokkaido Heritage.

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
