Overview
More
This historic festival has been held in Toyota, Aichi since the Kakamura period (1185-1333). The festival centers on a Shinto ritual dedicated to driving away evil spirits, where handheld firework cannons are ignited and offered up on the grounds of Yoshida Shrine. It boasts what has now become the largest fireworks display in the East Mikawa region, held on the eve of festival proper, sending a endless parade of fireworks, including the tetsuzu cannons, trick fireworks, and starmines, rocketing off into the night sky. The day after the fireworks, the festival features a portable shrine procession known as the Yoritomo Parade. Shrine parishioners clad in traditional dress and teams of three performing the Sasao-odori dance attend the palanquin as it travels throughout the town while children dressed up as military commanders hand out steamed manju buns.
