Gogan Shinji Rite (Bamboo-Splitting Festival)
In this rite held at Sugo Isobe Shrine, young men dressed in white break 300 pieces of green bamboo into pieces by hitting them against the shrine’s stone steps and stone paths. At the end of this unique rite, a large rope representing a giant snake is thrown into a river.
