The Sanage Festival is famous for dedications of bonote implements, a martial art designated as an intangible folk cultural property by the prefecture. The festival is centered around Sanage Shrine. The guardian deity of Sanage Shrine is Ousu no Mikoto. Ousu no Mikoto was a member of the royalty in the Kofun period and is the elder twin brother of Ousu no Mikoto, who bears the same name. Ousu no Mikoto strived to open up and expand this region, but he is believed to have been bitten by a poisonous snake on Mt. Sanage and perished. Sanage Shrine also has a longstanding tradition of dedicating left-handed sickles. This goes back to the story of Ousu no Mikoto, the patron deity, being left-handed and using his sickle to clear the area and make it hospitable.
