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 cherry blossoms season.
