Tatemon Festival(To be held in 2022) たてもん祭り

Uozu’s unique sea-themed festival

This is a festival in which floats with rows of votes lanterns arranged in a triangular sail shape are heroically paraded around by strong young men dressed in happi coats. The sight of the float-pulling young men and the spectators all getting excited together is emblematic of summer in Uozu! Tatemon means a votive object that is offered in front of God to pray for a good catch at sea and safety at sea. They are paraded from the Uozu coast to the precincts of the Suwa Shrine. The sight of hundreds of beautiful lanterns lighting up the summer sky is truly impressive! The enthusiastic participation of everyone from Uozu, young and old, male and female, makes this a wonderful local festival.
