The Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri was founded around 300 years ago from the people’s wishes to have “a bountiful grain harvest.” Many years have passed since its inception, and today this festival also serves to strengthen the bonds between the local people. During this festival, people carry danjiri (decorative portable shrines) around town while letting out powerful cries. Another fun thing to look out for are the plenty of gourmet food stalls set up during the festival.
