The Inuyama Festival is a religious celebration held at Haritsuna Shrine. It was first held in 1635. 13 enormous antique floats, standing up to 3 stories tall, navigate their way through the streets during this festival. Mechanical doll performances also take place to the beat of music set by flutes and taiko drums.
One hour by train from Nagoya's Chubu Centrair International Airport, the entrance to the Chubu region, you'll find Inuyama.
