Autumn Festival in Hiwasa Hachiman Shrine

日和佐町 日和佐八幡神社秋祭り
This is a traditional autumn festival where people are praying for a good fishing yield, their safety at the sea, and a bountiful harvest.
More than 50 people parade around the shrine with a drum float called Chosa on their shoulders, run along Ohama Beach, which is famous for spawning sea turtles, and dive into the sea waves.
