    The Asuke Festival is held by Asuke Hachimangu Shrine. The main hall was rebuilt in 1466 and is designated as an important cultural property. This festival has been held since the mid 1700s and remains largely unchanged today. Four festival floats are paraded around the street. The event used to last for five days, but has now been contracted to two days. On Saturday is the pre-festival and on Sunday is the main festival. On Saturday night you will see a portable shrine paraded after a parade of lanterns goes past. The shrine makes its way through the town.
