The Kurayoshi Utsubuki Festival
The Kurayoshi Utsubuki Festival is bustling with activity, with events such as the mitsuboshi (3 stars) dance, a parade of dashi floats, ushi-oni (cow-headed demons), portable mikoshi shrines carried by an all-women team, and hiten (heavenly beings) firework displays. The Hiten Fireworks Festival, held at the Hiten Yume Hiroba Plaza brings the Kurayoshi Utsubuki Festival to a glorious close. Nearly 4,000 fireworks illuminate the night sky with fabulous colors. The fireworks plaza also offers other on-stage events and even hilarious Tottori pro wrestling.
