Funadanjiri

The event represents hopes for a large catch of fish. A colorfully adorned katsuo (bonito) fishing boat is placed upon a danjiri float and some 30 or so young people hold fishing poles with model katsuo on the end of the lines while riding on the float. It is paraded through the town as the young people energetically and raucously swing their katsuo in a wonderful display of bravado.
