Shan Shan Hoodie


SKU: N/A Category:


Tottori City Japan has a big festival every year called the Shan Shan festival, where teams of people make a slow parade through the main drag dancing with these colorful paper umbrellas. It is essentially a prayer for rain that the entire city participates in. It happens during Obon, which is kind of like the Japanese Day of the Dead- a time to honor your ancestors, and a time when their spirits visit their graves. But Shan Shan Festival isn’t somber, it’s a fun time to get dressed up, hang out in the street, eat fried food, and dance! 🙂

This design is based on a design from a manhole cover in Tottori, which pictures one of the colorful paper umbrellas. The top left says “Tottori” and the bottom right says “Mori”. It also kind of looks like a flying saucer shooting out some kind of focused energy beam. Very cool.
