A festival held where the "Fujie-no-Watashi" (Fujie Crossing) boats used to depart in olden times. Before the dawn of bridges, people from Eastern Mikawa would cross to Chita Peninsula using the boats for hire that departed from this location in Takahama-City and took passengers to Higashiura-Town on the other side of the Iura Bay strait between the two towns. On special occasions, the boats were also used to take brides to their new homes on the other side, so the term "Yomeiri-Bune" (Betrothal Boat) was also coined. At this re-enactment event, carried out to preserve this memory of Takahama, a bride boards the boat, re-living the Yomeiri-Bune history.
The boats of Fujie-no-Watashi were used by many travelers and businessmen and are deemed to have influenced the local economy in many ways. Also, after the opening of the Taketoyo Line, and while the Meitetsu Mikawa Line did not yet exist in Mikawa, people would cross the Fujie-no-Watashi in order to take the Taketoyo Line at Higashiura Station. Curiously enough, at the Higashiura-side this crossing is called "Fujie-goshi" (Fujie Traverse).
Festival music players, food tents and other attractions animate this simple, yet cute festival.
