Norikura Opening Ceremony (Kaizansai)

Today was the opening ceremony for Norikura and the locals put on a great festival to celebrate. This ceremony is held every spring and marks the start of the hiking and mountain climbing season.

There was lots free soba and local foods along with some fresh rice wine to top it off. Here are a few photos from today. You can also find more photos at my Facebook fane page.
