Sado Ogi Taraibune and Sazae Matsuri (tub boat & turban shellfish festival)
While away a summer day at Ogi Minato Park!
Sado Ogi Taraibune and Sazae Matsuri is a great way to while away a day at Ogi Minato Park. Tub boat racing takes place in the sea in front of the park, which is a distinctively scenic spot in Ogi, and that adds much excitement to the festival. Also offered is a tub boat riding experience. Entertain yourself with the variety of performing arts shown on the stage. The festival offers free okijiru (Alaska pollack soup) service, and stalls selling Sado specialties, tuna, and grilled turban shellfish. An annual festival highlight is the popular "Grab Turban Shells" game (for a charge).
