Kawaguchi Shrine, initially built in 10th century, is being worshipped as the guardian god of my city Kawaguchi. The autumn festival is held at the historical Shinto shrine every October. Every couple of years, many mikoshi, or portable shrines, gather at the festival from neighboring areas and parade around the shrine. Thirteen mikoshi joined it this year. They left the shrine one after another on a sunny morning, paraded around vigorously and gathered again at the square in front of Kawaguchi Station, to perform a spectacle together.
