Fighting Float Festival in Fushiki

Giddily violent collisions!

  • Lantern floats shining bright in the night

This is a heroic spring festival held at Fushiki Shrine. At night the six daytime flower floats are transformed into lantern floats that violently crash into each other with lanterns swinging, to the tune of a Yamaga style military taiko drum. Oozing the spirit of a port town that combines colourful brilliance with courage, this is an important festival that hands down both tradition and emotions. Please try to take part in this magnificent festival.

  • Hikiyama floats lighting up the twilight

  • A flower float by day

  • A puppet on a flower float
