The Asian Lunar Calendar and Ceremonies

A lunar month started with no-moon, had the full moon on the 15th and 28 days to go.
The first lunar month of a year started the round of 12 months.
With the calendar reform in Japan, things changed, making the life of a haiku poet more difficult.

Hadaka Oshiai Matsuri

quote
This is the festival, with a 1,200-year history, to pray for a good harvest for the year. Daimyo-Gyoretsu (a procession of a lord & samurai warriors) leaves Honmachi Maruyama-mae at 1:40 pm for the temple.
The highlight of this festival is Hadaka-oshiai in which about 500 young men only in loincloths purify themselves by pouring cold water over them, and then jostle one another for catching Kifuda (wooden tablets of prize coupons) in Bishamondo (hall) for several times between 7 pm and 11 pm.

悪態まつり(茨城県笠間市、愛宕神社)
Akutai Matsuri "cursing festival"
Kasama Town, Atago Jinja

quote
Cursing festival.
Also called akkō matsuri (bad-mouthing festivals),
At the akutai matsuri of Atago Jinja in Iwama-chō, Nishi Ibaragi-gun, Ibaragi prefecture held on December fourteenth (formerly, the fourteenth day of the eleventh month of the lunar calendar), worshippers verbally abuse each other as they proceed to worship at Mt. Atago's mountaintop shrine. At the shrine they trade insults with a person impersonating a tengu (goblin of sorts that inhabits mountains). If one wins this exchange, it is believed that they will receive good fortune in the coming year.
Those who became angry as a result of these insults were told that their silkworm production would suffer in the new year.

Shimada Obi Matsuri 島田帯祭 Belt Festival at Shimada
Shizuoka (静岡県島田市)




Every three years in mid-October, the Obi Matsuri (or Obi Festival) takes place in Shimada, Japan. The next Obi Festival is October 12 - 14, 2007.

quote
The Shimada Obi Festival dates back to 1695 when young brides traveled to Shimada and visited the town's Oi Shrine to pray for the birth of a healthy baby. Afterwards, while wearing their wedding obis (a sash) around their kimonos, they walked through Shimada and became a public attraction.

The young brides were shy about the attention and the town residents felt sorry for them. To protect their privacy but still display their obis, the residents created an affair similar to a fashion show at the Oi Shrine. Dancers displayed the obis on behalf of the brides and the event attracted parents of future brides and merchants.
