The Takayama Spring Festival/Sanno Matsuri takes place at Hie Shrine in Takayama City, Gifu – not to be confused with the festival and shrine of the same name in Tokyo.
The festival features processions of large wheeled floats, mikoshi (shoulder borne portable shrines) and marionette performances all to the magnificent mountain valley backdrop of Hida Takayama.
The Takayama Autumn Festival is a very similar festival held in October.
