About Japan Dick
Festivals in Japan provide opportunities for locals to break free from the constraints of everyday life by drinking, dancing, and generally having a good time. The Kanamara Matsuri, or Penis Festival, is a one-day celebration of cross-dressing, penis-shaped lollipops. And, of course, a few giant phalluses, which puts an end to sexual repression. Given Japan’s reputation, they are mild-mannered, respectful, and extremely private, a raucous genitalia festival they are celebrating may be out of place.
In Japanese culture, however, there are many opportunities to let your hair down – they are only more clearly defined. So, even if you get a little tipsy at the office nomikai (drinking party). And sing some ill-advised karaoke with your boss, all they will forgive and forgot on Monday. Even though it’s not usually appropriate to discuss or confess to having a sex life in public, the Kanamara Matsuri attracts entire families to celebrate sex, fertility, and the production of life itself.
