Japan is famous for having some strange traditions and festivals, and the Shimada Obi Festival is definitely one of them, and one of the major three odd festivals in Japan. This festival in particular has a 300 year tradition of wishing pregnant women a safe delivery at child birth. Of course, in comparison to the old days, child birth has become much safer due to advancements in medicine and technology, but this is still an important topic and wishing the health of pregnant women is definitely something everyone should do. So why not take part in this unique festival, for that extra unique Japanese experience.
