The Owara Kaze-no-Bon Festival: Praying for a Rich Harvest

If you enjoy dining at Japanese restaurants, then you might find it interesting to learn that in Japan, the Owara Kaze-no-Bon Festival is held each year to pray for a good harvest that will provide food for the town by protecting crops from wind damage.

Held annually in Toyama City on the first three days of September, the Owara Kaze-no-Bon Festival is a traditional event that is designed to appease the wind and promote a successful and bountiful harvest. This folk festival corresponds with the 210 th day after the first day of spring, which is a date that’s said to be affected by calamities that affect agriculture. To help protect farms from typhoons, the men and women of the town cease work during the festival days, light lanterns, dance at night, and pray for a rich harvest.

If you’d like to get a taste of authentic Japanese dining, teppanyaki, and culture here at home, then come and try the delicious cuisine served at House of Genji. To schedule your reservation at our Japanese steakhouse in San Jose, call (408) 453-8120.
