Fukuno Yotaka Festival Eve 福野夜高祭前夜祭

The excitement of a festival on the night before the Yotaka Festival

This takes place on the evening before the thrilling Yotaka Festival in an excited atmosphere. 7m high giant lantern floats are paraded through the streets amidst boisterous cheers of encouragement. On this “eve festival”, the Yotaka song and the Yotaka dance are performed as the mood rises in anticipation of the main event the following day. Over the course of May 1st and 2nd 20 lanterns of varying sizes are carried through the city centre accompanied by people signing the Yotaka song. The late-night jostling on the 2nd has to be seen. On the 3rd Hikiyama floats from 4 districts are taken around the city centre.
