Tenjin Matsuri Festival

 Tenjin Matsuri Festival Dedication Fireworks Display

This festival is the greatest in Osaka boasting of a history of a thousand years. On the morning of the 24th, it starts with the Hokonagashi Ritual (Throwing the sacred sword) by Hokonagashi Bridge. Shishi-Mai (Lion Dance) and Mikoshi (Portable shrine) go around the territory of the shrine. In the Hommiya (Main day) on the 25th, the Rikutogyo starts from the shrine at about 15:30, and finishes in the shrine again through the Funatogyo. The festival reaches a climax during that passage. A large number of torch-lit boats cruising the river and the fireworks are splendidly displayed.
