1. Attend a Penis Festival
Perhaps they’re compensating for something, but a two-and-a-half metre wooden phallus makes an impression.
To prove this is not just some cock-and-bull story, head out to Tagata Jinja in Komaki. It’s a Shinto shrine north of Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture with no bones about penis worship.
The shrine can be viewed year round, but the festival on March 15th attracts every Tom, Dick and Harry to celebrate fertility and renewal. You will have ample chances to knock on wood and pray for procreation.
Some clever dick even started catering to those with an oral fixation. There’s stiff competition between the chocolate covered bananas and pink penis lollipops.
If you’re feeling cocky and don’t believe it, visit the Japan Travel Guide for more information.
