My friend Glenda observed, like I did, that fertility and the male penis is everywhere now-a-days. She received the following photos (and more) and asked her good friend (whose son is married to a Japanese woman) whether this was for real.
She learned that these penile celebrations/festivals are very, very old. Japan keeps up its old customs and that is why these are still going on each year. They are Shinto religious ceremonies tied in with fertility gods and held out in the small farm, country villages.
I wonder what they smoke in those penis pipes?
