Ishiage Festival [we let you be and worship]

Strange festival of the world

Ishiage Festival is held every year on first Sunday of August. As for the origin of festival, the mountains of Owari Fuji lost in "competition with neighboring Mount Hongu for back" in the old days. Therefore we raised, and enshrined deity of Owari Fuji commanded the mountaintop to raise mountain with stone to villager. And we granted wish to villager who piled up stone and gave benevolence of the gods to find happiness. It is "Ishiage Festival" that any people regardless of age or sex carries up large and small stones for this on the mountaintop in family and group. It is festival that family, friend, anyone including group of the workplace can participate in. On hot summer day, we match power together, and we raise stone, and let's pray the mountaintop of Owari Fuji for one-year health and security. For more details, please contact our Ishiage Festival tradition preservation meeting (the Owari-Fuji Oomiya Sengen Shrine).
