The Kanamara Matsuri (aka “Festival of the Steel Phallus”) is a Japanese health and fertility rite dating back as far as 300 years. During the festival, well-wishers literally worship massive, portable representations of the engorged male member. Fun for the whole family!
Also, for people a bit peckish, there’s the usual fare of noodles and nibbles on offer, although for those particularly partial, a pecker or even a pussy may also be purchased......
With their portable shrines and pots of sake, Japanese festivals are generally fairly boisterous affairs, but for Kawasaki’s annual fertility festival at Hachiman-gu Shrine, bawdy could be deemed a far more accurate description — the marvelling at massive members, being the main source of amusement.
