Imari Ton-Ten-Ton Festival in Saga Prefecture is well known as one of Japan’s three great fighting festival. It is a ritual of Imari Shrine. Its name comes from the sound of taiko drum beats. The sound of Ton-Ten-Ton drum beats signal the cue for the teams to run at each other crashing their portable shrines(mikoshi).
Two portable shrines(mikoshi), Aramikoshi and Danjiri, meet at various points throughout central Imari City. They are smashed together simultaneously until one mikoshi falls back.

On the final day of the festival, you can see the climax of the festival, "Kawa-Otoshi Battle", a pair of portable shrines clash and rush down into the river. The winning team is the one who first brings their shrine up to the land, and they would be given good luck in the year to come.

This shrine is currently undergoing construction on the base buildings, however the upper levels are still open. This shrine is particularly of note as at open of the upper levels is a monument to Morinaga, founder of the candy company and born in Imari. It’s peaceful walking around this shrine next to the river. During Ton Ten Ton, this shrine has a lot going on and it’s worth stopping in at that time.
