Title
Text A float decorated with variously shaped objects (spears, mountains, people, flowers, etc.), and carried or drawn on wheels to the accompaniment of festive music (hayashi). The name dashi is said to have come from the unwoven ends are tassels or "protrusions" (dashi) of the plaited bamboo receptacle (higeko) found on the upper part of the float's central "spear" (hoko). Historically, floats called dashi are derived from floats called shirushi no yama that were drawn during the Great Festival of Enthronement (Daijōsai) during the Heian period, and served as a sign (shirushi) of the presence of the kami during the festival. With time, however, the addition of elaborate decorations and musical accompaniment placed dashi at the center of lively gatherings. In the Kansai (Osaka) region dashi may be also called danjiri, while in the Kantō area they also go by the name yatai. See also yamahoko.
