The Gion Festival in Kyoto, the Takayama Festival in Hida, and the Chichibu Night Festival are regarded as the three greatest parade float festivals in Japan. The festival is held on December 2 and 3, when the area is crowded with a large number of tourists. Two gorgeous kasaboko (large parasol-like objects decorated on top with spears and artificial flowers) and two yatai floats shaped like small houses are paraded through the city streets. The most exciting scene of the festival unfolds on the evening of December 3 when kasaboko and yatai floats, weighing as heavy as 20 tons each, climb up a steep slope to Otabisho (the destination). Fireworks are launched during the period, which is rather unusual at this time of year in Japan.
