Unique festival celebrated in this country, thousands of people reached the temple naked, know

This year this festival is being celebrated for the last time. The reason behind this is that the youth population in Japan has decreased, due to which the burden of festival work has also fallen on the shoulders of the elderly.

To celebrate this special festival, thousands of people reached the temple drenched in sweat and without clothes. This scene was from Japan. It is called Hadika-Matsuri festival. The festival was first held at the famous Saidaji Temple in Okayama. This story is 1250 years old. Amidst the chilly weather, thousands of people participating in the festival wade through the water, which is considered sacred for anyone passing through it. Hadiqa-Mussoorie is celebrated every year in February. This year this festival is being celebrated for the last time. The reason behind this is that the youth population in Japan has decreased, due to which the burden of festival work has also fallen on the shoulders of the elderly.

It is also called Naked Man Festival. People participating in the festival will have to wear only a loincloth. It is celebrated on the island of Honshu in the southern part of Japan. Saidaiji Kanonin Temple is on this island. This festival starts with the dance of women. In the evening people circumambulate the temple. At night the priests throw bundles of twigs and sticks at the people from the high window of the temple. It is believed that the person who finds this stick will have a good year. At the festival, a local person is chosen as the shin-otoko, or god man.

When people come to the temple they have to touch the God. However, this year the thousands-year-old festival was celebrated for the last time. Thousands of people from across the country and abroad come to this festival. Japan's population is declining rapidly, leaving very few young people left. Daigo Fujinami, a monk at the temple, which opened in 729, said, 'It is very difficult to organize such a big festival. You can see what happened today. There are a lot of people here and it's exciting. But there are a lot of rituals and a lot of work that has to be done behind the scenes. I cannot turn away from this difficult reality.
