SpotKiriko Matsuri

The Kiriko Matsuri are a collection of summer festivals held at more than 100 places all over the Noto Peninsula from early July to mid September. Kiriko lanterns, an impressive 10 m in height are carried throughout the towns and the majestic kiriko create both a gorgeous yet a solemn atmosphere as they swing in the night sky. The Abare Matsuri in Noto-cho is the first Kiriko festival held each year with the Issaki Hoto Matsuri in Nanao City, the Wajima Taisai in Wajima City, the Koiji Himatsuri in Uchiura-cho and other Kiriko Matsuri following thereafter. The climax of the Horyu Tanabata Matsuri in Suzu City features 'kiriko in the sea' as many kiriko rush from the beach towards three torches already in place - dynamic scenes initiated by the brave men of the sea.
