Overview
More
This annual Hachiman Shrine festival is held every August 14th and 15th in Shizuoka City. A Japanese orchestra featuring taiko, shamisen, and shakuhachi flutes plays as an 800kg portable shrine is paraded through the town. The symbolic taiko drums are intended to imitate the beat of the war drums that inspired soldiers in the Tokugawa army when they were victorious in their famed siege of Osaka. On each taiko float, a large bass drum hangs from a torii gate, and several smaller drums are fastened around the perimeter of the float. One great highlight is when along the parade route, all of the shrines gather in one place for a spirited group performance.
