Seasonal Events

Shibayama Haniwa Festival

Shibayama Haniwa Festival

Second Sunday in November

Ancient burial mounds (called kofun) were discovered in Shibayama, and excavations have dug up haniwa terracotta figures sculpted by people living here long ago, 150 of which are on display in the Haniwa Museum at Shibayama Nioson Temple. The Shibayama Haniwa Festival is a celebration of the art and lifestyle of these people with ceremonies symbolizing their return to greet today’s residents, the fraternization between people of each era, and finally the ancient people’s ascent back to the heavens. Children dress up in costumes to represent the residents of old, and adults don armor for a procession of ancient warriers.
