Hofu Tenmangu Gojinko-sai Festival (Hadakabo Festival)
A wild festival with around 5000 people overflowing the city who from the evening on pull giant wickerwork carriages and carry two portable shrines (Mikoshi) to a place closely related to the arrival of Sugawara no Michizane’s boat and Katsuma no Ura (the place where the sacred carriages are lodged during the festival). The way down on the big stone stairways and the way upstairs on the way home are special highlights. On the next day (26th) after noon the women’s portable shrine appears.
