This festival is said to have originated when women in yukata summer kimono from the entertainment quarter visited the temple on a palanquin called kago. It is also called Yukata Festival, because people begin wearing yukata at this time of the year. Presently, aizen musume girls in yukata parade through the town on a decorated palanquin called hoekago in a festive atmosphere. Aizen Myo-o, the primary god of the temple, is known as a god of charms, good luck, love and happy marriages. The statue of the god is open to the public during the New Year season and this festival only.
