The Inuyama Matsuri is held at the beginning of April in the city of Inuyama in Aichi Prefecture.

Coinciding with the blooming of the cherry blossoms, the festival features processions of three leveled ‘dashi’ – traditional wheeled floats.

The festival dates back to 1635 and was officially recognised by the Japanese government in 2006 as an “Intangible folk cultural property” – presumably for the insurance.
