Origin of Otaya Festival and floats

Otaya Festival The annual festival of Furumachi Toyokei Daijingu, located in Furumachi (formerly Nagakubofuru Town) in Nagawa Town, is known as the Otaya Festival.
 The origin of this document is the document of Bunsei 11 (1828) in the late Edo period, which is the oldest record at present, but it is thought that the festival has been held for a long time.
 At Furumachi Toyokei Daijingu, a relocation festival is held every 20 years, following Ise Jingu, and the annual festival is held from the evening of January 1th to around noon on the 14th.It is customary for families with customers to start this day at the beginning of the year and start at that age.In addition, worshipers also visit from the Ueda and Saku areas, and are crowded with many people.
 At the Otaya Festival, when the lives of the common people became stable and there was room to spare, floats were dedicated to make the festival a success.
 The sentence "Mita (Travel) shop bustling, several places of Mijiya" in the diary of the old family's Tenpo 6 (1835) is the record of the oldest mountain car currently known.
 Matsuri Float was designated as an intangible folk cultural property selection in Nagano Prefecture in 38 as a valuable traditional culture that inherits simple peasant art, and is currently produced by a preservation society at five locations in each ward.
