Sapporo Matsuri (Hokkaido Jingu Reisai)

Sapporo Matsuri (Hokkaido Jingu Reisai) Hokkaido (June)

Hokkaido Jingu Reisai, known as Sapporo Matsuri, began in Hokkaido's frontier period, when the citizens wanted to welcome the deity to their town. The highlight of the matsuri is the parade of shrine priests and citizens and the procession of four mikoshi (shrine float) and nine floats through the center of the city. The floats are decorated with figures of Prince Yamato Takeru, Emperor Jimmu and Shima Yoshitake, who was involved in the establishment of Sapporo. It can be said to be a matsuri in which the cultures from different areas of the country that gathered in Sapporo blend together.
