Many dancers called HANETO, the leaper of the Aomori Nebuta festival, jump up and down yelling out “Rasserah-Rasserah!” and jingling bells.
The bells that “HANETO” have dropped while jumping up and down are called “the bell of fortune” and are very popular among children and tourists, who believe it will bring good fortune to those who pick up.
Recently, there are many kinds of bells, and the most popular is “Apple Bell”, which is modeled after the figure of an apple, the speciality of Aomori Prefecture.
This “Apple Bell” is rare to get and the most popular among children and tourists.
Why don’t you come to see this Nebuta festival and pick up good fortune!
