Title
Text Boat-Pulling Festival. A festival held on March 2 at Kanbe Shrine in Kushigata Town, Naka-Koma County, Yamanashi  Prefecture. A rite commemorating the invocation (kanjō) and the journey of the shrine's kami Miwa-myōjin, from the Ōmiwa Great Shrine (Ōmiwa Taisha) in Yamato. A boat-shaped float carrying a load of green wood, with a ritual wand (nusa) stuck in the middle, is pulled along the streets. An exchange of questions and answers on the kami's journey is enacted in front of the altar by shrine officials and a performer impersonating Miwa-myōjin. The festival also features an archery ritual.
