The highlight of Inuyama Festival

It is festival of Yama having been continued since the Edo era. Device unusually comprises mechanism doll in all Yama (13 *) wonderfully, too and dedicates mechanism to Harituna Shrine nationwide. The splendor not to be inferior to cherry blossoms in full glory at noon, brilliancy to turn on 365 lanterns all at once at night, and to go round are the highlight. "donden" which is dynamic, and men lift Yama more than 5t in weight, and changes direction is Riki Osako.
