Overview

The Fushiki Hikiyama Festival, also known as "Fight Mountain," is a yearly spring festival held on 5/15 at Hikiyama Shrine. The hikiyama (festival float) during the day are decorated with flowers, and at night the floats are decorated with a huge number of paper lanterns. The main highlight of the event is the kaccha, in which 6 floats covered in paper lanterns are rocked violently and crashed into each other to the beat of taiko drums and hayashi (Japanese orchestra) accompaniment. On 5/14, the eve of the festival, the flower-decorated floats will be lined up for an illuminated display.
