Kaminari-yoke Festival

This is an annual festival to pray for protection from thunder and fire and also for a rich harvest. The talisman is presented to the visitors from 5pm.
The comical performance will be held from 10:00 to 15:00.
The ceremony would be needed to hold especially in such an unstable weather in current summer!
