- Narumi Festival (Urakata)
- Date : Annually on the 2nd Sunday of October
- The Narumi Festival was originally held as a single festival across the entire Narumi region, but later came to be held separately by the Narumi-jinja Shrine (Urakata) and Narumi Hachimangu Shrine (Omotekata). The Urakata Float Festival consists of floats from four towns; Tange, Kitaura, Hanai, and Kinomoto and is held on the 2nd Sunday of October every year.
Narumi-jinja Shrine is also known as Togu (East Shrine), because it is located to the east of Atsuta-jingu Shrine, with which it has a deep connection. The memorandum of 1736 preserved at the shrine forms reliable evidence. According to this memorandum, the festival used to be held by the whole of Narumi with no distinction between Urakata and Omotekata. There were five floats, dances, and two horses as well as a portable shrine. There was a dispute before the altar in 1700, which resulted in the holding of separate festivals at the Narumi-jinja Shrine (Urakata) and Narumi Hachimangu Shrine (Omotekata), by their respective shrine parishioners.
