Q: What happens when a man marries a woman from the Niigata prefecture?
A: He gets thrown off a cliff.

A news report about the Mukonage (groom throwing) festival that took place in Niigata on the 15th:

Recently married men were chucked over a cliff onto a snow embankment to pray for good luck in their marriage.
