Giant Japanese Bamboo Snake - 271 Feet Long!

This is a short clip of a festival I recently went to where the locals make a giant snake 271 feet long out of straw and bamboo. There are legends of giant snakes throughout Japan that were (or are) big enough to kill dogs, children, and even unwary travelers. There have been unconfirmed sightings even in modern times of large snakes. This town has its own particular legend of a giant snake which once caused problems with the town.
