Motoshinmei Shrine Annual Festival


The Motoshinmei Shrine Festival happens over two days in mid-September. Both days feature food booths and activities, with bon dancing. Day one (Saturday) features the big festival with taiko drumming from noon inside the shrine and in the surrounding streets. Day two (Sunday) features mikoshi (portable shoulder-borne shrines) from 13:30 to 15:50 — you can check the route here.

There will also be a small ceremony on Wed, September 14.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
