Inspired by the Neputa Matsuri in Aomori Prefecture, at this rousing festival, people carry giant floats shaped like folding fans with warriors painted on them. While that goes on, traditional music plays and excited viewers cheer and shout throughout the night. It is held every third Saturday in July.
