“Matsuri”, festivals in Japan mean succession of tradition to posterity. The festivals have long history. People pray to “Kami”, God with all their heart at the festivals. Yamaguchi Broadcasting Company has been broadcasting this series of the local festivals by keeping up the close coverage of people who have a high regard for their old tradition. The young people challenge the big stage under pressure, as the family support them, and the friends watch over. This is a story about the emotional connection between the generations, pride and human warmth that people in Japan value through “Matsuri”.
