There are 12 floats called hikiyama with a tiny kabuki stage at the Nagahama Hikiyama Matsuri held every April. These massive floats appear at Nagahama’s main festival each year. What makes them particularly unique is that childrens kabuki performances are held on their tiny stages, which is the result of putting a huge community and group effort into the productions. Nagahama Hikiyama Matsuri was inscribed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity as one of the 33 Yama Hoo and Yatai Float Festivals in Japan.
