Kanamara "Steel Phallus" Festival in Japan Participants carry a phallus’ shape during the Kanamara Festival at Kawasaki on April 2, 2017. The Kanamara Matsuri or the festival of the Steel Phallus was started by prostitutes who wished to pray for protection from sexually transmitted diseases. People now wish for easy delivery, marriage and married-couple harmony. The festival is held on the first Sunday in April at the Kanayama shrine. It has become a tourist attraction and is used to raise money for HIV charities. 02/04/2017-Kawasaki, JAPAN
