Hachinohe Sansha Taisai

Hachinohe Sansha Taisai Aomori (July)

Hachinohe Sansha Taisai has continued since the Edo period. The highlights of the matsuri are the elegant procession of mikoshi (portable shrine) from three shrines, the varied local performing arts, and the competitive performance between the splendid floats. It is one of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Yama, Hoko, Yatai, float festivals in Japan. The stunning floats are remade every year, and as they are maneuvered toward the crowd, loud cheers swell up from the sides of the roads. It is an Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property designated by the country.
