With around 300 years of history, this autumn festival takes place every year on the first Saturday and Sunday of October. The main attractions are the floats adorned with karakuri mechanized doll puppets. Sixteen dazzling floats weave along energetically underneath the autumn skies and accompanied by the Tsushima festival music.

Owari Tsushima Autumn Festival (Owari Tsushima Aki Matsuri)

The karakuri puppets do calligraphy, fly in the air, act out various scenes, and generally leave the audience rapt. There's so much excitement to be had in Shagiri, where the front wheels of the float are lifted from the ground so that it turns gallantly, and the Ishitori Matsuri car threads through the gorgeous floats ringing bells and banging drums, and bearing traditional Kagura Shinto music from great flute and taiko drum players.
