Before you get your pervy hopes up, the Ohara Naked Festival (Ohara hadaka matsuri) would be more aptly named the Ohara “semi-naked” Festival. The dancers costumes are actually quite modest with only (male) chests, shoulders, and buttocks bared.
On the first day of the festival, participants carry portable, shoulder-borne shrines (mikoshi) to the sea at 2:30 p.m. for a dunking — which goes a long way towards explaining the costumes. On both days processions make their way around the local area from morning till around 5 p.m. when the shrines converge on Togyo Shopping Street.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
