Tobata Gion Yamagasa (戸畑祇園山笠）
Intangible Heritage List in 2016.
Tobata Gion Yamagasa is one of the three major summer festivals in Fukuoka
The festival has a lot of energy and is very dynamic as is the case with
festivals such as the Hakata Gion Yamagasa，with young men wearing
the happi (festival costume) and hachimaki (head band)， carrying the
Yamagasa (festival float) and walking around the town shouting
What is remarkable is the way the character of the Yamagasa changes
from daytime，with the Nobori Yamagasa (festival floats with flags); to
nighttime，with the Chochin Yamagasa ( festival floats with lanterns).
Office on Saturday night.
The Nobori Yamagasa used during the daytime is dismantled，and the
10 metre-high Chochin Yamagasa，with its 309 lanterns arranged in 12 tiers，
is assembled and carried along in a race by dozens of young people crying
Sugawara Shrine and Nakabaru Hachimangu Shrine.
