Shizuma Shrine


Held each year at Shizuma Shrine, this festival is known for intricately engraved and decorated festival floats. Locals from each of the nearby neighborhoods create three unique floats, presented as offerings at the shrine.
During the procession up the steep slope to the gates of Shizuma Shrine, people line the path to cheer and call out in support of those carrying the floats.
Long preserved by locals, this festival is one of Iiyama's traditional fall events.
