Overview
More
The Taichineputa no Yakata festival, held in Goshogawara every August, features vast 'taichineputa': glowing parade floats nearly 80 feet tall and weighing in at about 38,000 pounds! People help to shoulder the floats throughout the city, while dancers and musicians energize onlookers with chants and riffs. It's a high-energy and visually stunning parade, with about fifteen floats in total-- three of which are larger than life.
