Futon-Daiko Festival is held in this Kasuga shrine
It had disappeared once at Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s Negoro attack, but it was reconstructed after that and it became Soja in Sano. The 29 shrines in Sanomachi have been enshrined together at Kasuga shrine since 1908.
This is the ”Taikodai” festival held to wish a safety and a good catch in the local fishery. Its nickname is “Futon Daiko” festival because the futon-shaped decorations are topped on the “Taikodai” float. Futon-Daiko festival is held in July every year.
