The Fushiki Hikiyama Matsuri [Fushiki Float Festival] will take place in our neighboring prefecture of Toyama.
The first festival was held in 1820, and the festival is a designated cultural asset of Takaoka-shi. In the afternoon, hikiyama, or festival floats, are adorned in flowers paraded to the Fushiki Shrine. At night, the flowers are exchanged for lanterns, and the participants crash the floats into each other.
