Inabe Shrine Oyashiro Matsuri Ageuma Festival 大社祭・上げ馬


Held on the first weekend of April (except April 1st and 2nd), the Oyashiro Festival's main event is the Ageuma ceremony when six teenage boys gallop on horses to leap up a steep incline. The Ageuma is unique to Mie Prefecture. Also see my YouTube video here.
