  • Wakamiya Festival

All float processions in 2020 have been cancelled. Only Shinto rituals will be held.

This festival is held at Wakamiya Hachimansha Shrine, Sochinju (a general village shrine) in Nagoya as a big annual festival. The Fukurokuju-sha is a float registered as a cultural property and is very valuable in that it carries four wind-up dolls. Shinyotogyo-Dashihoei (a Shinto ritual to carry a portable shrine and a float) was resumed at the 1985 festival. When the procession of floats are brought out and carried through Nagoya, it resembles ancient picture scrolls showing the traditional ritual.
