Every year from October 9 to 11, the 400 year old Omiyuki festival is held at Kotohiragu Shrine.
On the night of the 10th, 500 participants carry a mikoshi shrine 2 km to the otabisho where it is housed. During the route, they run down 785 steps in a single dash to the delight and amazement of the tens of thousands of visitors.
