Imari Ton-Ten-Ton Festival

Imari Ton-Ten-Ton Festival is held for 3 days every year near the end of October. Located in Imari City, the festival is one of the three great fighting festivals in Japan. In the festival a crashing battle took place between the two huge portable shrines, the Ara-mikoshi and the Danjiri. After a death during the battle in 2006, this part of the festival is performed by reducing the scale. The name "Ton-Ten-Ton" represents the sound of drums used in the festival.
