The Sedo Festival is a shrine ritual held on the third day of the New Year, while Namahage is a folk event held on New Year's Eve. These two events have been brought together in the Namahage Sedo Festival to create a tourism event for winter. The boisterous Namahage dance that unfolds within the grounds of the Shinzan-jinja Shrine against the backdrop of fire called sedobi within fascinates all who see it.
