A Traditional Festival With Beautiful Yamahoko Parade Floats and Karakuri Mechanized Puppets
The karakuri puppet dolls riding on top of yamahoko parade floats are a well-known feature of the Tahara Festival, which began in the Edo period.
Three yamahoko floats and elegantly decorated mikoshi shrine floats go on parade, while at night children seated atop the yamahoko floats wave to the crowd.
