Takayama Matsuri (Takayama Festival) is known
as one of the three most beautiful festivals in Japan
with Gion Matsuri (Gion Festival , Kyoto) and Chichibu-Yomatsuri
(Night Festival in Chichibu, Saitama Pref.).
Beautiful, fantastic and gorgeous floats made by Hida-no-Takumi
(special woodworkers who have high technique in Hida district)
are carried through the streets.
They are just like a moving art museum.
People in Takayama welcome late coming spring with this festival.
