登別温泉の地獄祭り

Jigoku Matsuri in Noboribetsu Onsen

“Jigoku Matsuri(festival)” is held at Noboribetsu Onsen(hot spring) in Hokkaido on the last Saturday of August every year.

“Jigokutani”(Hell Valley) is located in Noboribetsu Onsen and the festival is from a legend that a pot of hell opens then Enma Daio (King of hell) comes out with devils and visits the hot spring.

Pounding drums are seen, and the local middle school students carry a mikoshi portable shrine and dance “Oniodori”.

Enma Daio parades on the main street of the hot spring town.

Since the festival collaborated with a popular anime “Hōzuki no Reitetsu” in 2014, a lot of fans from across the country visited.

登別温泉には「地獄谷」があり、
そこの地獄の釜が開いて、
閻魔大王(地獄の王)が鬼たちを引き連れて
温泉を訪れるという伝説から来たお祭りです。
太鼓を叩いたり、地元の中学生が神輿を担いだり、

温泉街の大通りを閻魔大王が練り歩きます。
2014年のお祭りでは人気アニメ「鬼灯の冷徹」と
コラボしたため、全国からたくさんのファンが訪れました。
