Overview

Imazato no Jamaki is an event associated with Boy's Day celebrations to pray for huge harvest. Boys who are middle school-aged and older use new straws to create a large "snake" of 18 meters at Kizuki Shrine in Imazato. The boys carry the snake and parade the streets of Imazato chanting "Congratulations" and finally wrap the snake head-up around a large tree on the southern side of the shrine.
Date: 1st Sunday of June
