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

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.
