ICONIC 90s rap artist Sir Mix-ALot once said, “Baby Got Back”, but it seems for the scores of peo­ple flock­ing to the streets of Kawasaki in Ja­pan, baby may also have quite a lot of...front?

The coun­try’s an­nual Kana­mara Mat­suri fes­ti­val, held ev­ery year since 1969, will kick off on 05 Apr in hon­our of - you guessed it - men’s nether re­gions.

High­lights of the colour­ful fes­ti­val in­clude a pa­rade of men and women dressed up as a large pink gen­i­talia, while on­look­ers also have the chance to pur­chase in­ter­est­ingly shaped ice blocks and can­dles.

So why all the phal­lus-fuss, you ask? To raise funds for HIV pre­ven­tion pro­grams, of course.

Only in Ja­pan.
