Oto Matsuri Festival

Oto Matsuri Festival is held every year on the 6th of February (it is coming Wednesday) at Kamikura Jinja Shrine.  This festival celebrates the changing of the season. 

Because the festival is held at Kamikura Jinja Shrine at night of the 6th of February, they do not allow tourists to enter the shrine afternoon. 

Only the Noboriko (participants for the festival) can enter the Shrine. 

Therefore, if you would like to visit Kamikura Jinja Shrine on 6th of February, please make sure to get there in the morning, or you are not able to get inside of the shrine. 

If you would like to watch the festival, you will see the Noboriko walking around the town ( they visit three shrines in Shingu city) until 17:00, then they go inside of the shrine before 19:00, and at 20:00 the fire will be lit. 

If you need further information, please contact us info@shinguu.jp
