Tomobata Festival

This spring Festival is dedicated to Mifune Shrine. This Festival is also known as Mifune Matsuri. The 10 boats are decorated with 5 coloured Fukinagashi streamers. A huge streamer which is 20 m tall and 2 m wide and is made by stringing 500 Minogami papers is erected on the catamaran boat. This huge streamer is called Tomobata. These boats then rove around the Ogi Bay in tune with the rallying cries of "Yo-Yo-" and music of flutes, bells and drums. The scene which looks like a painting from an old picture scroll is sure to take you back in time. (City's Intangible Folk Cultural Property)
