Beautiful Golden Rice Stalks Float in the Night Sky: Akita Kantō Festival

This is Tomomi Hama from ariTV.

 

For today’s Revival Calendar we bring you a video of Akita’s Kantō Festival.
The Kantō are 15-meter bamboo poles adorned with 46 lanterns resembling stalks of rice.
This year once again the festival took place from August 3-6 to call for a good harvest.
More than 250 kantō with over 10,000 lanterns lit up Akita’s night sky.

 

It was my first time to see the event in person; the beautiful kantō and the intensity was so exciting!!
I felt like I wanted to come back every year.
