Yokone Fujii Shrine Festival is held on the second Sunday of October each year. Three traditional floats are brought out, and children in formal shrine dress enact court dances and play ancient court music (designated as an intangible cultural folk property by the city) to pray for peace in Heaven, on Earth and for the people.
