Aug 3Aug 5

Held every year on 3-5 August, The Numata Tengu Festival (沼田まつり, Numata Matsuri) is a famous festival in Gunma Prefecture. Over three days various portable shrines and floats of all shapes and sizes are carried and pulled through the streets of Numata, but it is the Tengu Mikoshi which make the festival special: two shrines shaped by giant goblins, each weighing over 400 kilograms and pulled exclusively by women.
