Mikoshi ( miniature shrine ) , Autumn festival
















Vehicles are regulated on even the large road
so that they carry safely.

















They carry Mikoshi for Shinto gods through the streets of their town.
































The miniature shrine is very heavy. This is weight of 700 kilos.
So they carry in turns.
































The young women carry Mikoshi (portable shrine) on their shoulder recently.


The children ( Dashi ) float carried a Japanese drum
 very slowly around the town.


The children's miniature shrine is not heavy.


Children like goldfish scooping. They caught several goldfish.
It is a staple attraction at festivals in the shrine..


This is a shooting gallery. 
Some of children got gift products after hitting a target.
















They relaxed and drunk Sake and beer after they finished
carrying heavy Mikoshi.
