The festival originally started in the Edo period (1751-1764).
It is believed to have originated from the custom of local worshipers selecting stones from the Machiya River to take to the local shrine.
The stones were ceremoniously transported to the shrine on carts, while taiko and kane were played.
In 1981, the festival was designated as an asset of intangible culture for Mie Prefecture.
In 2007, it was designated as a national asset of intangible culture.
