With simple arrangements of the Inaba umbrella dance brought from eastern Tottori, the Shan-Shan Festival has become one that anyone can join. The name ‘shan-shan’ is based on onomatopoeia for both the sound of a bell ringing and the sound of water boiling (reminiscent of Tottori’s many hot springs). Every year the area is bustling with over 4,000 people taking part in the umbrella dance. The splendor of this festival has just recently gained attention throughout the country.
