Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival


The Yamakasa Festival takes place in the area of Hakata and Gion here in Fukuoka.
Lots of, a bit, naked men running while carrying a large and heavy thing. Hm. For in depth information, Fukuoka-now has some. For the awesome video, you stay here.
I can absolutely recommend going there next JULY 15 if you can manage a night without sleep.  (The main attraction starts around 4-5AM).
