One of the Three Biggest Festivals of Okazaki-City!

The Tenmangu Shrine Festival in Okazaki is held annually from September 23rd to 26th and is one of the greatest festivals of the city. With processions, rituals and demonstrations of martial arts such as Kendo Tournaments and others, as well as rituals using the traditional Tezutsu Hand-Held Cannon Fireworks, the event draws great numbers of visitors yearly. The Okazaki Tenmangu Shrine is home to the local Kami god that is believed to have protected that land since the olden times of Okazaki-Juku, when the city was a mere station along the Old Tokaido Route. The shrine is also known for its Ume plum trees that in spring blossom and pour their sweet fragrance in the air while decorating the premises with their pinkish hues.
