EventsYamaga Toro Matsuri (Lantern Festival in Yamaga)

The festival begins with the decoration of Hono Toro, a lantern shaped like a famous shrine or castle. These toro are made in each area of the city and are then displayed here, drawing the attention of both locals and tourists. "Sennin Toro Odori" is the main event of the festival: 1,000 dancers (consisting of women's association members and girls) swing the lanterns which are placed on their heads. While dancing in a relaxed mood, they shout aloud, "Yohehoh, Yohehoh."
