Danjiri Festival is a festival cart-pulling festival held around Osaka area. A "danjiri" means a large, heavy wooden float in the shape of shrine or temple. The biggest Danjiri Festival in Japan takes place in Kishiwada City, Osaka, every year in September.

The opening pull of Danjiris starts at 6:00 morning on the first day, Sep.14. Danjiris begin a mad dash around the streets of castle towns at the sound of siren.
After the opening pull, between 9:30am and 5:00pm, 34 danjiris are pulled by local men to parade through towns and race with each other. The Danjiri is towed by about 500 men and women with two ropes of 100 meters in length. One of the main highlight of the Danjiri Festival is "Yari-mawashi", a traditional skill in turning Danjiri at corners. The Danjiri is towed at nonstop running speed while navigating 90 degree corners. Its powerful and thrilling towing attracts a multitude of spectators.
After 7:00pm, lantern-lit Danjiris parade throughout the town. Danjiris are decked with Chochin red lanterns and do the parade in a slow procession along the main route. The bright lanterns, the rhythmical drums and chants mix harmoniously make atmosphere so warm and peaceful.

On the second day, at 9:00am, Miya-iri (Going to worship at the shrine) starts. 34 Danjiris devide into three groups and go to worship at the three major shrines.

This place is wide. I bought a safety amulet from a guy in this place. It even has the English word "safety" on it. So cool.

岸和田城前にある由緒正しい感じの神社です。
皇紀二千六百年事業の石碑もあって
どんなことがあったのだろうと、
思いめぐらせていました。

本日、岸城神社にて参拝させて頂きました。初めての参拝です。

今日は、五月晴れの良いお天気です。このような日に岸和田に来て岸城神社に参拝できて良かった🎵

岸城神社

岸和田城天守閣の東側に鎮座し、城の鎮守の神であり、岸和田だんじり祭の聖なる場でもある岸城神社。もともとは、地元の農民たちが五穀豊穣を祈って神明社を築いたのが始まりとされますが、約650年前に京都の八坂神社から素戔鳴尊(すさのうのみこと)を勧請(かんじょう)してからは、牛頭天王社(ごずてんのうしゃ)と呼ばれ、地元の守り神として繁栄してきました。後に、慶長年間に秀吉の家臣・小出秀政が岸和田城を大改修するのを機に八幡大神を合祀、以来代々の城主や住民にも厚く信仰されてきました。明治維新で氏子が広範囲になり、「岸城神社」に改名され、平成20年8月に氏子崇敬者のご奉賛により、現在の御社殿が完成致しました。岸和田城が千亀利城(ちきりじょう)と呼ばれていたのに因んで、縁結びの神(ちぎりのかみ)として参詣者が多いです。有名な岸和田だんじリ祭はこの社の例祭です。
