2017.5.3 Inami Yoiyasa Matsuri Festival

The festival starts early in the morning of May 3rd and continues until evening.

Beginning in 1833 (the 4th year of the Tenpo era) to pray for good business and household safety, the festival includes 6 portable shrines (3 carried by adults and 3 for children), lions from 3 areas of the town, and festival floats from 4 areas of the town. Parading for 10 km, they imbue the town with a special vibrancy—the lion masks skillfully crafted with Inami wood carving techniques are a must-see!
