About The Festival
"The Hikiyama Parades of Tsuchizaki Shinmeisha Festival" are part of the sequence of annual rites performed by the Tsuchizaki Shinmeisha, which is the central shrine of the Tsuchizaki town. It is an Important Intangible National Cultural Asset and has been loved by many under the nickname of "Tsuchizaki Minato Hikiyama Festival".
The Hikiyama Parades are performed on July 20th and 21st, but many other rites and festivities occur before and after the Parades.
This is a festival of long tradition and deep affection for the Tsuchizaki locals.
