March 1st

Ohori biraki speaks eloquently of the incoming of spring in Yanagawa. This is a traditional event handed down from the period of feudal lords. During the event all the moats are temporarily dammed up to be cleaned and disinfected by sunning, and then the dams are taken away so that water comes into the moats again.
