Ozato Hachiman Shrine Autumn Festival & Women’s Danjiri Pull

The day before the festival, 1,300 fireworks will decorate the night sky on the banks of the Kaifu River.

The night before the festival, 1300 fireworks will decorate the night sky near the Kaifu Rivermouth. Seven majestic sekibune boats and danjiri carts will kick up a cloud of dust as they run through the streets in this exhilarating autumn festival full of the sound of bells and taiko drums. The night before the festival, there will also be a large presentation of fireworks at the Kaifu Rivermouth. The season of women’s danjiri has also arrived. This year, too, we hope everyone will join in on this experience,
