The Nomi Shinmeigu Shrine Festival is one of Okazaki-City's Three Great Festivals, with huge ritualistic events that have maintained their format virtually unchanged since early-mid-Edo Period. The event culminates in the "Dashi Miya-iri" ritual, when the eight floats converge at the shrine, each with the countless decoration lanterns hanging about and all lit up at once, being pushed around the city in the direction of the main shrine.
