Azumino Kamiakari

Azumino Kamiakari

Held every year in the early cold of winter, the Azumino Kamikari is held at the beautiful Hotaka Shrine. Over two thousand bamboo lanterns light up the shrine and surround precinct, mimicking the same gift given by the deity ‘Toyotamahime’ to her brother, ‘Hotakaminomikoto’ – to whom the shrine is dedicated.
