Shimodate Tourou-Nagashi

Shimodate Tourou-Nagashi Tourou floats down the dark surface of the Gongyo River. The Mantou is to commemorate all souls.
 On the first Saturday of August, the Tourou Nagashi is conducted at the Gongyou River. It was originally conducted to commemorate the victims of the Great Kanto Earthquake; however, it was later changed to honor the memory of the victims of war.
 The Tourous quietly float down the river one by one in the evening twilight.
