Events

Ibi Festival and Children's Kabuki [4-5 May]
Ibi Festival is said to start in Kyoho era (1716-1735) in Edo Period. During the middle of Meiji Period, dedication form to the shrine changed from dancing to Children's Kabuki performance.
Five districts collectively hold luxurious decorative floats (which are prefectural folk culture assets). They are gathered at Miwa Shrine and placed side by side to create the performance stage where local elementary students play Kabuki for two days from 4th till 5th of May. In addition on the 5th of May, men in pure white clothes carry 3 large and heavy portable shrines on their shoulders and march on the streets. Other smaller portable shrines are also carried on the shoulders, following the larger ones.
