Mozu Hachimangu Shrine, Osaka
The Futon Drum Festival is a popular autumn event held throughout Sakai City as well as other areas in Osaka and Hyogo. The festival floats are quite distinctive; there is a roof made from red futons forming an inverted pyramid, and a Japanese drum is placed underneath. Each float weighs about three tonnes and more than 50 men carry it in the processions. On both days, each participating neighborhood will take turns carrying the futon drum floats.
