Japanese Festival

Did you know that an annual penis festival is a thing? 

Let us introduce you to the strange world of the Japanese Penis festival that has just happened in Japan. 

Each year, thousands of people take to the streets of Kawasaki to participate in the festival. The festival began back in 1969 (Yes, that year is correct) and aims to raise awareness about safe sex. 

During the event, giant steel phalluses are paraded through the huge crowds as a portable shrine and the whole festival is said to have grown out of a Japanese legend. The festival is ultimately to raise awareness for a great cause and all money raised from the event go to HIV research.
