The Kanto Festival was a festival from very early in Rokugan's ancient history. It was celebrated the second day of the Rooster. Its name and purpose derived from a legend cherished by the Tribe of Isawa. The purpose of the festival was to drive sleepiness away during the hot summer months. The Rokugani raised kanto - large bamboo poles with rows of a dozen or more lit paper lanterns - and paraded through the streets, drawing the sleepiness out of the people. [1] The kanto were also traditionally carved in the form of the ears from rice plants, expressing hope for a bountiful harvest in the fall. [2]
