Onda Matsuri (rice-planting festival), Asuka Village, Nara Pref.

5th February, 2017 | Asuka Village, Nara Pref.  

Onda Matsuri in Asukamura Nara is a rice-planting festival that climaxes with sexually-explicit skit that has drawn large crowds in recent years.
The event starts when two men—one dressed as a long-nosed Tengu goblin and the other as an old man—enter.

They prance around to the rhythm of drum beats, lead a man dressed as ac ow through a field, and perform rituals meant to enrich local rice paddies.
When they return Tengu makes love to his new bride Otafuku (a role played by a man) following instructions provided by the old man.
The display is quite convincing.

At one point the Tengu wipes papers on his wife's thighs and throws them into the crowd. People try hard to grab the paper which is supposed to bring about the birth of healthy kids.

The festival used to obscure and lightly attended but Internet chatter about the sex has brought large crowds.
