In Inuyama City, Aichi Prefecture, the traditional "Inuyama Festival" to show off karakuri dolls on a gorgeous car mountain began on the 4st on the same scale as usual before the Corona disaster for the first time in four years.

The Inuyama Festival is a traditional festival that has continued since the Edo period, and was registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in Heisei 28.

On the first day of the festival, which was blessed with good weather, while the cherry blossoms were in full bloom, a mountain of cars with luxurious decorations such as black lacquer and gold paku came out from the warehouses in each town and paraded through the castle town.

The spectators who gathered took pictures of more than 1 men parading around the mountain while pushing forcefully along the mountain to accompany the gorgeous car mountain and the chant.

In addition, at the bend at the foot of Inuyama Castle, a national treasure, there was a loud cheer when a technique called "shagiri" was demonstrated, which runs while turning vigorously at a right angle.

Then, when all 13 car piles were lined up, the puppets were shown one after another on the pile, and the people who gathered were fascinated by the unique movements of the dolls.

Due to the influence of the new corona, we canceled it for two years until the end of the year, and last year we took measures such as limiting the range of operation of Kurumayama, but this year it was held on the same scale as usual before the corona disaster.

Yoshihiro Ishida, chairman of the Inuyama Festival Preservation Association, said, "We are very happy to be able to hold the event as usual, and we hope that everyone will come."

The "Inuyama Festival" is held for two days.
