Taiko and Tubetops

Raiden is a festival for the man and women in all of us, respectively. Every year, the people of Mie-Machi in Oita-Ken reenact the spirit of man and spirit of woman coming down from their two mountains to yell at each other. Its a celebration of the two sexes and is a splendid festival that involves a lot of taiko, dancing, and glowing floats. It occured at the tail end of summer in the month of August.
