Overview

Murakami Taisai is held yearly from July 6-7 at Senamihaguro Shrine in Haguro in the city of Murakami. It is a traditional festival that has been celebrated since 1633 and is designated as an Intangible Folk Cultural Property of Niigata Prefecture. The highlight of the festival are the 19 festival cars called oshagiri. They are over 5 meters tall and split into two levels: the first level houses the hayashi (Japanese orchestra), while the second level is full of decorations called nosemono. The dazzling floats house some items that are over 200 years old, and are paraded around the town for all to enjoy their engravings, laquering and goldsmithing.
