Namahage in Japan

Yet another slightly scary festival is Namahage, which celebrates a folk tradition by bringing it to life. Young people dress up as Namahage, which are deities who resemble ogres, and they visit children in their homes in the villages to scare them and ensure they are not lazy in the coming year. The punishment for laziness is that they maybe stolen and taken to the neighbouring mountains.

If you’re keen to visit Japan during any of these festivals, do remember to check the SOTC website for offers and deals on some excellent Japan packages.
