Inuyama Matsuri
   Held at the Harizuna jinja, Inuyama on the first or second Sunday in April, this is the only festival in Aichi prefecture to feature a parade of floats. They date from the Edo period, are three-storied like those of the Takayama matsuri procession and are lit at night by more than 300 chochin lanterns. One type has a hayashi band in the lowest section, puppeteers (see Furyu-mono) concealed in the middle section and puppets at the top; another is built like a boat.
