Okinohata Suitengu Shrine Festival
At the Okinohata Suitengu Shrine Festival, a boat with a stage called a “sanjinmaru” floats on a canal, and as it gets dark after sunset, music played by the Suitengu Shrine Festival Music Preservation Society and dances are dedicated to the three gods housed at the shrine while the boat cruises slowly or stops in the canal. Given Yanagawa City’s history of international exchange with Nagasaki and Amakusa (Kumamoto Prefecture) Cities as a fishing port, Suitengu Shrine Festival Music is also called Netherlandish Festival Music, giving listners a taste of the exotic! The three types of music (“Up”, “Down”, and “Paused”) are changed with the movement of the boat.
