Ono-Hiyoshi Shrine Sanno Festival

A large traditional festival which welcomes summer, the festivities stretch over two days and contains some great unique performances. The first day is demon payment day, aka Yahikobaba, and there is a mikoshi parade through the town. On the second day is the Lion Dance before all characters and participants are joined together at the shrine for the climax of the festival. The unusual costumes and performances have been deemed an Intangible Folk Cultural Property and are unique to the area. Although Mitsuya station is closer, you can catch a bus from JR Kanazawa Station to Ohno Center which is around 5 minutes from the festival area.
