Wakamiya Festival

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.
