Osumi Area Festival Local Performing Art and Traditional Event

Yagorodon is the god of health and long life, and is deeply revered by the people of Osumi as the god who protects their region.
At a height of 4.85 meters, it is said crying babies will quiet down.
With penetrating eyes that that seem able to see from one end of Osumi to the other, he sees all in Osumi.
With this ominous appearance, the sense of respect people have for the legendary Yagorodon is uncommon.
