"Benten Festival" is held in mid-July each year at Munakata Shrine enshrining the deity Benten, located at Kugushi area, Mihama Town, Fukui Pref.
This 2-days festival features the Mikoshi procession throughout the Mihama town including the kid's parade. Especially the boat procession across the Kugushi Bay is the highlight of the festival.The mikoshi are put on the boats and go on a cruise from the Kugushi bay. Local young men on the boats try to tip each boat over into the sea, and it is very thrilling and energetic.
