Sanno-sai Festival has a history of over 1200 years since Emperor Kanmu donated two mikoshi (791) to Hiyoshisha Shrine. While tracing the origins of the enshrined deities of Nishihongu Onamuchi no Kami and Higashihongu Ooyamakuhi no Kami, we pray for the peace and prosperity of the country of Japan. During the festival, seven portable shrines (1500 kg per unit) from the seven shrines of Sanno appear, and in full bloom of cherry blossoms, heroic Shinto rituals are held.
