Every year, on the first Sunday of April, thousands of people line the streets of the Japanese city of Kawasaki, south of Tokyo, to celebrate the male genitalia. Welcome to Kanamara Matsuri, literally translated as the “Festival of the Steel Phallus.”

Festival goers indulge in colorful penis-shaped food and memorabilia as portable shrines of three giant phalluses are paraded through the city. There’s a black steel phallus, a brown wooden phallus and a bright pink phallus known as “Elizabeth,” after the name of a popular Tokyo cross-dressing club that donated the giant sculpture, which is traditionally carried by people in drag.
