Although the Daradara Festival happens on the same dates each year, it’s still unclear if the 2022 event will be going ahead due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘Daradara’ means ‘endless’—a name earned due to the extraordinary length of this traditional festival. While most shrine festivals go for 2 or 3 days, this one goes for 11 days—the longest of any traditional ‘matsuri’ in Japan.
