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 shrines through the town, the yoimiya vigil on the eve of the festival, and fireworks in dedication to the gods. On Sunday is the popular "O-hamaide," where a taiko drum float called a chosa is plunged into the ocean.
