  • Kita District Summer Festival
This summer festival is held in the Shimo-Handa District located in the southeast of Handa City. The Miyabiguruma float was built in 1993, the year of the Crown Prince's marriage, and so it is named after the Crown Princess, Masako. The two-tier float is decorated with a bamboo screen that resembles a curtain made of decorative Japanese cord, and approx. 120 lanterns. On a stage created by boards being laid across the float's front shafts, Nihon Buyo (traditional Japanese dance) and festival music are dedicated.
