The Mifune Festival is hosted each year by Kurumazaki-jinja Shrine, and as an extension of the events of this festival, participants will recreate the aristocratic Heian Period pastime of leisurely boating across the river. A number of traditional rituals will be performed on the decks of a pleasure boat, a dragon boat, and a boat adorned with a bird.
