Swastika Aomori Nebuta

Festival Aomori Nebuta Matsuri, Japan
The most widely known explanation is that the festival originated from the flutes and taiko future shogun Sakanoue no Tamuramaro used to attract the attention of the enemy during a battle in Mutsu Province. However, it is unlikely that Tamuramaro actually conducted military expeditions in what is currently Aomori Prefecture, so this explanation is considered to be a legend. The festival most likely evolved out of traditional Shinto ceremonies like Tanabata.
