Ikibina Matsuri

Ikibina Matsuri

takes place annually on the third of April at the Hida Ichinomiya Minashi Shrine. This traditional festival is conducted to pray for a good harvest and women’s happiness. It is known nationally therefore it attracts many visitors. Nine unmarried women are chosen from the Hida area and dress up as Hina dolls. As Hina dolls they participate in a parade and mochi throwing ceremony. A collaborative event with TV anime show HYOUKA also takes place on this day.
