This festival has been classified Although intangible Japanese pop culture. The highlights of these three days are the Koshiki Kacchu Keiba, a race of 1000 m. riders that engage in samurai armor, helmets and carrying the katana, the sword traditional and Shinki Sodatsusen in which hundreds of samurai on horseback fighting for standards of the 40 sanctuaries launched into the air at the same time which is from a firework.
