About
The Nada Kenka Matsuri (Open Sea Brawl Festival) is an annual grand fall festival held October 14-15 at Matsubara Hachiman Shrine in the neighborhood of Shirahama in Himeji. As the name implies, the festival is a boisterous event that mixes participants with spectators, including a Shinto ritual with 3 mikoshi (portable shrines) smashing into each other and a float battle that involves intricately decorated floats from each town mashing together. When night falls, the floats are illuminated with electric and fire lanterns, creating a bright and lively atmosphere. The festival is designated an Important Intangible Cultural Property of Gunma prefecture.

One of the festival floats, pictorial descriptions are on display at the ground floor of JR Himeji shinkansen station. Very bright and colourful festival float.
