Hanamaki, Japan: The Japanese city of Hanamaki celebrated the annual Konsei Festival in the Osawa hot springs on Sunday. Local men carried the big wooden phallus deity, also referred to as the “Konsei-sama”, to the rhythm of traditional music.
Every spring, there is a p****s festival in Japan known as Konsei, Kanamara Matsuri, or “Festival of the Steel Phallus.” The phallus is the central theme of the festival and is reflected in illustrations, candy, carved vegetables, decorations, and a parade.
The Japanese legend of the Konsei or Kanamara Matsuri is that a jealous sharp-toothed demon hid inside the Virginia of a young woman the demon fell in love with and bit off the privates of a young man she married on her wedding night as they consummated the marriage. After the demon did the same thing to the second man she married, the woman sought help from a blacksmith, who fashioned an iron phallus to break the demon’s teeth.
While the city of Hanamaki celebrated Konsei or Kanamara Matsuri, this weekend, other Japanese cities celebrate it on the first Sunday of April every year. The Japanese city of Kawasaki – an industrial city in the Greater Tokyo area – also celebrates Konsei or Kanamara Matsuri on first Sunday of April. Kawasaki City annual P***s Festival is much bigger and more widely known.
The phallic festival is a spiritual event in which adherents worship the p-deity (Konsei-sama) and celebrate both the p***s and fertility.
According to local Japanese beliefs and tradition, the annual Konsei P***s Festival rituals bring fertility and safe births.
