Otabi Festival 2024 Float-Pulling Experience
One of the main highlights of the Otabi Festival in Komatsu City is the grand line-up of hikiyama floats in the city center.
Each of these hikiyama are owned by a neighbourhood of Komatsu, and during the festival each year, the residents of these neighbourhoods come together to pull the towering floats to the assembly point.

These year, we invite members of the public to join in this lively procession and have an intimate experience of the festival behind-the-scenes!

This will take place on:

11th May (Sat)
12.15 PM ~ 13.45 PM

*Sign-up by 26 Apr (Fri)

**Submissions closed* Thank you!

Meeting point: Komatsu Stn

*In the event of overwhelming volume of sign-ups, participants will be selected via lottery.

*Note that the neighborhoods are offering this more as a cultural experience than volunteer recruitment, hence you may be asked to pull the hikiyama for only a short distance. Nevertheless, we hope you can enjoy this chance to mingle and experience the festival up close!

*The locals you will be joining may not speak English.
