  • Tenno Festival
The Asahi Tenno Festival first started when people attached lanterns to torch stands with a prayer for the protection of children from the plague, and the float was made in 1762. After a Shinto prayer is given by a Shinto priest, a person holding a wand with paper streamers, elementary school students, junior high school students, and the festival music band board the float decorated with curtains, floral ornaments, and lanterns and it is pulled from the Tenno-sha Shrine to Atago-sha Shrine, and then back to the Tenno-sha Shrine after sunset by people in command of the float and villagers. Today, the float is only decorated with ornaments and lanterns and is no longer pulled because of increased risk due to the deterioration of wheels and other parts.
