The Kanto Matsuri is held from every year Aug. 3 - 6 in Akita Pref. During the Night Parades nearly 250 Kanto poles are carried along Kanto Odori street. The shape of the Kanto poles evolves the image of a stalk of rice, while each of the 46 lanterns represents a bale of harvested rice. With the sound of drums, flutes and audiences chanting, the performers balance the 12m tall 50kg poles on their foreheads, shoulders and backs, while praying for good harvest. ©Yasufumi Nishi/©JNTO
