[Japanese culture] 4 Japanese festivals you'll definitely want to visit

The Japanese [festival] was originally born as an act of expressing gratitude and praying to God, Buddha, and ancestors. In addition to thanking God, the original meaning of the festival is to hope that crops such as cereals are abundant and to appreciate the fruits, and sometimes to give the harvested crops as offerings. Not only in Japan but also in various countries, each region has its own rituals. Many Japanese festivals are classified as Shinto, but many are influenced by foreign customs. The region name may be associated with the name of the festival, or it may be named with the contents of the festival. Japan is said to have over 300,000 festivals nationwide. There are so many that it's difficult to see all of them, but I picked up four famous Japanese festivals that I want to see especially once.
