Asuke Shrine, located to the east of Asuke Hachimangu Shrine, holds this annual festival in honor of Hero Asuke Jiro Shigenori, who fought for the Southern Court of Emperor Go-Daigo in the Genko War (1331) at the Siege of Kasagiyama (Kyoto). In ancient times, this festival was usually held on May 3rd, which was the date on which Hero Shigenori passed away, but as of recently it is held on the second Sunday of April and the day before during the Sakura Cherry Blossoms season.

Each of the seven towns that compose the central area of Asuke District (Shinno-cho, Tamachi, Honmachi, Shinmachi, Nishimachi, Miyamachi, and Juei-cho) take their Hanaguruma float (lit. "Flower Car") and parade them around Asuke. The Hanaguruma floats are beautifully decorated with cherry blossoms, wisterias and other floral arrangements, and teenage girls play the Taiko drums accompanying the Hayashi festival music played by the band.
Young guildsmen in their twenties, called "Wakaren" maneuver the Hanaguruma around the streets by energetically pushing and pulling.
It is said that this event, being a gorgeous Girl Festival with the flowers and such, is the opposite to the masculine and courageous Autumn Festival.
