One of the three biggest festivals in Kyushu is the “Yatsushiro Myoken Festival”.

This is a festival that comes from the Imaginary Animal called “Kida” which has a head of a snake and a body of a turtle. It is part of Japan’s important Folk Culture that has not changed since the Edo period (400 years ago). If you have time, please come to the Yamashiro Myoken!
