Toyota-City Koromo Festival (Koromo Matsuri)

Date : 10/20/2018, 10/21/2018


  • Koromo Festival (Koromo Matsuri)

This great festival of Toyota-City is held annually on the third weekend of October. It features two days of celebrations and rituals with plenty of events such as parades, local street food, and traditional art demonstrations. The Shingakusai pre-event on Saturday showcases the gathering of the distinctive eight-wheeled floats parading through the streets. The celebrations continue on Sunday, with more festivities and fireworks at night on the banks of the Yahagigawa River.

Huge amounts of confetti are thrown to kick off the procession of the unique and majestic eight-wheeled floats of Toyota-City. It is a spectacular sight to see the great crowds of guild-members maneuver them through the streets, all the while chanting "Hoissa! Hoissa!" This festival is said to have its roots in the Edo Period, with its current form catalyzed in the Meiji period. Toyota-City was still named Koromo at that time, hence this festival's namesake.
The festival, a Designated Intangible Cultural Folkloric Heritage of Toyota-City, is a ritual performed to ensure abundant crops. As part of the ceremony, the floats pass by the shrine seven times doing their journey of the "mairi" procession.
