This festival begins at 9:30 in the morning at Enoshima’s Hetsunomiya Shrine. A large mikoshi (portable shrine) from Yasaka Shrine is carried across the bridge from Enoshima to Koyuguri Shrine on the mainland. On the way, the mikoshi is dunked into the sea. On the mainland, the mikoshi from Yasaka Shrine meets with a mikoshi from Koyurugi Shrine. The two mikoshi then parade together along a shopping street until the Yasaka mikoshi returns to Enoshima at around 6 pm.
Here are some photos from the 2016 festival!
