Chiryu-City Akiba Festival & Fireworks (Akiba Matsuri)
Date : 09/23/2018
A festival to recollect Chiryu City's autumnal traditions
In the Akiba Festival, groups of youngsters from the six towns go in a procession running around the streets while carrying Tamabako wooden chests on their shoulders and singing Nagamochiuta songs. At evening, each group enters Chiryu Shrine in turns, and make the offering of tezutsu hand held cannon fireworks in a courageous act. Regular airborne fireworks are shot in between each tezutsu ritual.
