Hyaku Hatto Nagashi Festival
A hallowed boat carries 108 candles downs the Uzuma River， with Gagaku-style music (Japanese Imperial Court music)， performed by a historic Japanese orchestra. This Buddhist event is said to have begun at the beginning of the Meiji era to pray for the safety of boat transportation on the Uzuma River and to flush away 108 earthly desires.
