I happened to know this event when I visited Shiriuchi Hot Spring in Shiriuchi-cho, a neighboring town of Fukushima-cho. Fukushima-cho is well known for people living in Donan, or southern part of Hokkaido as a hometown of a well known former Yokozuna, or grand champion, Chiyonofuji.
This is a stag beetle from abroad. Now you can see various kinds of domestic and foreign stag beetles at the entry hall of the history museum in Nanae town now.
As this festival gets nearer, I feel happy and sometimes have a lively talk with others who share the same experience.
If you want to know more about this festival, please refer to the following entry I wrote last year.
