Horen, a gorgeous cart is drawn by local people in the neighborhood. 
A parade of 25 towns' mikoshi (portable shrines) goes on Kuramae-dori Street from early morning. About 1,000 kentomyo (lighted lanterns) are lit up in the precincts, and takigi-kagura (torch-lighted Shinto dance) is performed to the accompaniment of the music in the precincts of the shrine.   (*reference: Japan Times)
