Sado no Bon “Shishigajo Matsuri”

A summer festival in Sawata featuring the popular "Firework Fantasy" display synchronised to music

Sado no Bon "Shishigajo Matsuri" is a festival held in the Sawata area. (Bon is the name of the time when the spirits of the deceased return home.) Attractions include a set of restored, traditional festival stalls, a marching band parade, a bounced and shaken portable shrine procession, a bon-odori dance, Ondeko (demon drumming), and more. There is, also, a beach volleyball competition held at Sawata Bathing Beach. The musically accompanied fireworks display, "Firework Fantasy," is popular because of the dynamics of being launched at close range in rhythmical patterns syncronized to a wide variety of music.
