Kazusa Junisha Matsuri has a history of over 1200 years. The goddess Tamayori-hime-no-mikoto from Kazusa no Kuni Ichinomiya Tamasaki Shrine is landed to Tsurigasaki coast and once a year to meet other gods from the same family. It is Boso’s oldest Hamaori ritual, in which the Omikoshi ( portable shrine ) is taken into the sea. Over 1,000 semi-naked youths carry 12 Omikoshis, which bear the related gods, and rush along the sea at Kujukuri Beach, heading for Tsurigasaki, the venue of the matsuri.
