Each spring, people flock to Kawasaki, Japan, to celebrate Kanamara Matsuri, aka the Japanese annual p3nis festival “Festival of the Steel Phallus.”
The festival is a celebration of the p3nis and fertility. People parade gigantic phallic-shaped mikoshi (portable Shinto shrines) down the streets during the event, as revelers suck on p3nis lollipops, buy penis-themed memorabilia and pose with sculptures in the shape of — you guessed it — p3nises.
The Shinto Kanamara Matsuri (かなまら祭り, “Festival of the Steel Phallus”) commonly interpreted as the Japanese Annual P3nis Festival is held each spring at the Kanayama Shrine (金山神社 Kanayama-jinja) in Kawasaki, Japan. The exact dates vary: the main festivities fall on the first Sunday every April. The phallus, as the central theme of the event, is reflected in illustrations, candy, carved vegetables, decorations, and a mikoshi parade.
The Kanamara Matsuri is centered on a local p3nis-venerating shrine. The legend being that a jealous sharp-toothed demon hid inside the vagina of a young woman the demon fell in love with and bit off penises of two young men on their wedding nights respectively with this young lady (even though history failed to explain why the woman did not warn the second husband). After that the woman sought help from a blacksmith, who fashioned an iron phallus to break the demon’s teeth, which led to the enshrinement of the item. This legend in Ainu language was published as “The Island of Women” by Basil Hall Chamberlain
The Kanayama Shrine was popular among prostitutes who wished to pray for protection from sexually transmitted infections.
It is also said the shrine offers divine protections for business prosperity, and for the clan’s prosperity; and for easy delivery, marriage, and married-couple harmony.
The Japanese Annual P3nis Festival started in 1969. Today, the festival has become something of a tourist attraction and is used to raise money for HIV research.
