Autumn Equinox Festival

The residents of Hakuba honored the gods of the Happo-One Mountain on Monday by carrying two portable shrines throughout Happo-Village before bringing them to the final station at the local Shinto shrine.

There, the locals prayed and enjoyed the beautiful weather with a community festival.

The locals perform the festival to show appreciation to the mountain for all it has provided the town and to pray for a bountiful rice harvest, and of course, lots of snow.
