Honensai (Honan Matsuri) is the festival performed in Tagata-jinja in Komaki-shi, Aichi. It’s performed on March 15 every year.

Diameter 60cm and a big man stem of about 2 m of length-shaped (male sexual organ) are made by a Japanese cypress newly every year. Evil men carry that in a portable shrine, and I line up and offer up to a shrine. Witches hold and parade one which models a small penis. When I touch that, a child “is received”, said.

The festival to which I pray that it becomes productive in grains and that it’s blessed with a child. It’s popular with overseas tourists and I bustle with many people.
