Who knew a penis festival existed? The Japanese Festival of the Street Phallus happens every single year at the beginning of April.
Kawasaki plays host to the phallus-themed celebrations which see penis floats take to the streets.
The crowds partake in genitalia-carving competitions along with buying phallus-shaped lollipops and other trinkets.
Apparently, the festival originated from an old Japanese myth of a woman whose vagina was home to a demon. Said demon bit off the penises of two of her husbands.
The woman was forced to enlist the help of a blacksmith who crafted a steel penis that ended up breaking the demon’s teeth.
Today, the festival promotes fertility, health and happiness and is a joyful occasion that also gives all proceeds to HIV/AIDS research.
