Every year in October, a Taiko drums festival is held, for protection and good haul, in Maisaka, a fisherman town in western Hamamatsu. The first festival day is a parade of Teodori(empty hand dance) and eight Taiko drums. The Taiko drums are carried to Kisa shrine. In the second festival day Taiko drums and portable shrines are heading to Inariyama. On the way to Inariyama, teodori are making a parade in the town. In the evening, they are returning to Kisa shrine. The Taiko drums are huge, having 2.5m diameter. It's an extraodinary show in which the portable shrines and Taiko drums are carryed up and down the shrine stairs, respecting the traditional ritual inherited from Maisaka ancient people.
