Product Description

Rocket
The Ryusei Festival, known for handmade rockets launched by local farmers, is held on the second Sunday of October every year. This is Muku Shrine's annual festival, that has been continuing since early times. The festival is famous for handmade rockets called Ryusei (lit. dragon vigor) named after their resemblance to dragons ascending to the sky. Traditionally, there are 27 styles of rockets with unique gimmicks. More than 30 rockets are launched with a roaring sound every year. Although each rocket is handmade, it goes up to 300 to 500 meters, which shows a beautiful white line drawn in the blue sky.
