A three-day festival with handheld and airborne fireworks!

On the first day of the festivities, on the premises of the Ko Oyashiro Shrine, there is a marvelous display of the famous hand-held "Tezutsu Hanabi" fireworks cannons, roman candles and other sorts of pyrotechnic devices. Come back on the second day for a great show of 1,800 launched fireworks!

A parade with kabuki dances and jesters!

The four neighboring districts bring out each respective float for the procession / parade by the Oyashiro Shrine for the festivities.
