The autumn festival on the third Sunday in October
Furuta Toyouke Shrine
The lion dance is comprised of two lions, a tengu and two monkeys as they dance to the music of 10 people playing flutes and drums. The lion and tengu fight ferociously, and in the second half the lion is weakened, but it is revived in the end. It is said that letting a lion bite a child's head will make the child grow up healthy, so the day is bustling with many families.
