• Short Summary

    Japanese ceremony to celebrate their defeat of Korea many centuries before.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "'The Old Japan' comes to life for a day in annual 1750 year old 'Shirahama Shrine' Festival."

    Japan.

    Top views of large parade of Japanese men. They are carrying two large pallicins (sp?) (they look like ornate Sedan Chairs). The two wooden pallicins are smashed together and one breaks up - the fight is meant to symbolise Japan's defeat of Korea many centuries before.

    Tilt up hillside covered with large crowd.

    Men involved in the ceremony leap up and down with joy.
