Annual Festival of Hakodate Hachimangu Shrine/函館八幡宮例大祭

Hakodate Hachimangu Shinto Shrine is the oldest shrine in Hakodate. This year they hold their annual festival on 14th and 15th of August. The climax of the festival is the carrying-up of its potable shinto shrine. About 100 people who carry the gorgeous 2 ton portable shrine dash up 134 stairs.

This spectacular dash-up can be seen at 17:00 on 15th of August. This event is biannual so if you lose tomorrow, you have to wait until 2010.

The portable shrine will leave the Hachimangu Shrine at 11:00 and it is carried to JR Hakodate Station and then, returned to the Shrine.

To get to Hakodate Hachimangu Shrine, please refer to the following past entry.

Hakodate Port Festival/函館港まつり

Did you go to see fireworks display on August 1st? It was the first day of the Hakodate Port Festival. On the 2nd and 3rd, there should have been held parades, but heavy rain prevented them.

Today, it is really fine day and this evening, from Jujigai intersection through Matsukaze-cho Streetcar Stop, a festival parade is held. How about go and see and if you like how about joining the parade? Ika-odori, or squid dance is easy to learn and it's no problem to join the dance.

After the parade, you can visit temporal festival stalls set up in Daimon area. You can reach to there in five-minute walk from JR Hakodate Station. Just walk toward Matsukaze-cho direction walking around the streetcar street.

Enjoy the summer festival time in Hakodate!
