Niihama Taiko Festival新居浜太鼓祭り

Event

Along with the Awa Dance Festival of Tokushima Prefecture and Yosakoi Festival of Kochi Prefecture, the legendary Niihama Taiko Festival is ?one of Shikoku's three largest festivals. Giant taiko drum floats, which stand at about 5.4 meters and weighs about three tons, are carried by men known as kakifu. Their stirring parade around town has given the festival another name: The Men's Festival. The beautiful decorative curtains and cushions with golden embroidery which decorate the exquisite taiko drum floats are a must-see.

Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
