During this process, riders will still try to hold on and wave streamers from high in the air.
In the past 50 years, there have been fatal incidents at the festival, often involving multiple people. People have been drowned under the logs, crushed under falling logs, and have even fallen from the top while it was being erected.
Despite the risks posed by Onbashira, participants consider their deaths honorable if they happen in the festivities. No comments. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.

Paro Tshechu. All four shrines of the Suwa Shrine complex are each surrounded on their four corners by large wooden pillars known as the onbashira.
These pillars are all currently made out of momi fir tree trunks,  though wood from other trees such as larch or Japanese cedar were also used in the past.
Aside from the large onbashira at Suwa Shrine, smaller onbashira are also erected in its branch shrines throughout the country.
Onbashira are also found in many local shrines in historical Suwa district see pictures on left.
The onbashira 's origins and original purpose are shrouded in mystery. They have been variously interpreted among other things as relics of much larger structures, a kind of barrier or boundary marker cf.
Possible influences by the Chinese theory of the five elements and the concept of the Earthly Branches in the ceremony of erecting onbashira - at least that of the Upper Shrine - have been observed.
Due to the exorbitant amount of money required for the project, locals traditionally avoided or postponed special occasions like marriages, coming-of-age ceremonies , or even funerals during the year.
The upheavals of the Sengoku period threatened Suwa Shrine and its religious rites. Indeed, the shrine's ceremonies would have been lost to oblivion had not the warlord Takeda Shingen , a staunch devotee of the Suwa deity, took steps to revive their performance.
The introduction of the bakuhan system in the Edo period effectively ended the 'perpetual' obligation of periodically rebuilding the shrines and replacing their onbashira being imposed on the whole province of Shinano.
Since then, these duties became the sole affair of the villages of Suwa a. Takashima Domain , where the shrines were. It is thought that some of the current practices associated with the event may have been influenced by the rebuilding ceremony practiced at Ise Shrine.
The establishment of State Shinto after the Meiji Restoration in changed the religious landscape of Suwa. As the union between Shinto and Buddhism that existed then at the shrines—as in most places in Japan—was brought to an end  and control over the Upper and Lower Shrines merged into a single institution in was turned over from local priestly families to the government, the Onbashira Festival itself underwent massive changes.
Formerly, the task of procuring and raising the onbashira were assigned to different villages every time via mutual agreement.
In , it was decided that lottery will be used henceforth to determine which villages will be assigned which onbashira during a given festival.
The Lower Shrine's iconic Kiotoshi , wherein the onbashira are slid down a steep hill the Kiotoshi-zaka as men attempt to ride it, originated from the Meiji period onwards.
He is said to have repeated the same feat during the subsequent five festivals, making him a local legend. During the final years of World War II , as Japan's military situation became more desperate, the government began altering its original conscription laws, so that in , all male students over the age of 20 became subject to the draft, whereas they had formerly been exempted.
By , men under 20—some as young as 15—were being pressured to serve in the military. It has since become customary to pray for safety during the proceedings before a monument dedicated to his memory.
Yamadashi literally means "coming out of the mountains". During Yamadashi , teams of people drag the logs down the mountain towards the shrine.
The course of the logs goes over rough terrain, and at certain points the logs must be skidded or dropped down steep slopes.
