A government-designated Intangible Cultural Asset, this festival features a parade of 13 three-tiered floats strewn with 365 lanterns. Atop each float, elaborate karakuri ningyō (marionettes) perform to music. The festival has been held on the first weekend in April since 1635.

A scaled-down version is held on the fourth Saturday in October.
