Special on Karatsu Kunchi

Karatsu Kunchi, Dates: Nov. 2-4

This is the autumn festival of Karatsu Shrine. On Nov. 3, 14 floats travel to a sacred location on Nishinohama Beach (formerly in front of Taisei Elementary School) while protecting 3 portable shrines. The biggest attractions of the festival are the sight of the pullers who pull floats weighing a few tons from the sands, and the festivity of the floats and music.
Karatsu and Karatsu Kunchi are an inseparable pair. From the small festival at the opening, to the journey to the sacred location the next day, and the trip around the town on the final day, the town people come alive with the spirit of the festival. The best parts are the pullers who march through the streets in their matching "happi" coats, the 14 floats, and the dynamic, uplifting feeling.
