Iwato Festival is an annual religious event of the Iwato Shrine, located at the Umayose district of Imaise-Town, north of Ichinomiya-City.

On the Sunday, three beautifully decorated floats, called Daishoguruma, Nakayashikiguruma and Yamanoshojiguruma, are the center of attention as the townspeople in charge of operating them execute the Karakuri puppet doll performances.
The three floats are of the Inuyama Three Storied type, with separated puppets. Due to the combination of Karakuri and Tonin (Master of Event), it's considered a rare kind of float festival.

This event has origins related to the famous Battle of Sekigahara, as Tokugawa Ieyasu stationed in the shrine when moving to and from the battle.
