Inaho Festival (Fox’s Wedding)
The ”Fox’s Wedding”has first taken place in the autumn of 1950 as one part of the first Inaho Festival and has since then been a Shinto ritual which is held lively every year as one of Kudamatsu’s strange festivals.
At the festival a wedding parade of people wearing fox masks departs from the Kanba Site and slowly goes forward on the former main road to Hanaoka Station.
The leading actors are white foxes, bride and groom and happily side-by-side while being swung in a rickshaw and behind them their relatives and companions follow them wearing Hakamas with the family crest.
