This autumn festival has been held since ancient times to celebrate a bountiful catch of fish and good harvest. The festival takes place over two days on the Saturday and Sunday before the second Monday in October. On Saturday, there is a procession of Mikoshi of the shrine through the town, and then in the evening the yoimiya vigil and fireworks take place in dedication to the gods. On Sunday is the popular "O-hamaide," where a taiko drum called Chosa is plunged into the ocean.
