Hosoe shrine located in Hosoe-cho, North-ward, Hamamatsu-city worships the god of earthquake which is rare in Japan, it has a Gion festival in July every year. A long time ago, during the Meio earthquake a tsunami in the area that connected Lake Hamana to the sea, made a shintai drift from Arai at the lake inlet to Akaike in Kiga and it was worshiped by the people. They say that is the history of Hosoe shrine. At the festival, Mikoshi-boats which have a shintai (object of worship) on it and twenty more consort ships that have Debiki (decoration stand) cruise gracefully on the depths of Lake Hamana. At night, Debiki with lighted lanterns parade around the town with lively Ohayashi (accompanying music).
