This autumn festival holds every year on October 14 and October 15 at Matsubara-hachiman Shrine in Shirahama Town, Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture. The biggest highlight of the festival is the religious service called "Mikoshi Awase."

Otabi. The festival has been designated as Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property of Himeji City and Hyogo Prefecture.
