The Shinto Kanamara Matsuri, "Festival of the Steel Phallus" is the festival most popular with visitors to Japan, and also the most outrageous! Come join the Voyagin team for this craziest of all Japanese festivals!! There will be themed illustrations, candy, carved vegetables, decorations, a mikoshi (portable shrine) parade, and of course a visit to the sacred shrine. The Kanamara Matsuri is centered around a local penis-venerating shrine once popular among prostitutes who wished to pray for protection from disease. It is said that there are also divine protections for business prosperity and for the clan's prosperity; and for easy delivery, marriage, and married-couple harmony. There is also a legend of a sharp-toothed demon (vagina dentata) that hid inside a young woman and castrated two young men on their wedding nights. As a result, the young woman sought help from a blacksmith, who fashioned an iron phallus to break the demon's teeth, which led to the enshrinement of the item. https://flic.kr/p/7QCKcB https://flic.kr/p/JBbZg https://flic.kr/p/7QCHQk https://flic.kr/p/7R2U8p http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Kanamara-mikoshi2.jpg
