"Pinching festival."  A buttock-pinching festival held August 21-22 at Ukishima Shrine in the town of Tabuse, Kumage District, Yamaguchi Prefecture. The festival is so-named because women who visit the shrine have their buttocks pinched. It is said that getting pinched means you will be blessed with a good marriage.
