See Japan's largest portable shrine carried through the streets

People flock to Numata City every year for this vibrant three-day festival.

Japan's largest portable shrine, called "Daitengu mikoshi," is a mask of a tengu, a long-nosed goblin from Japanese folklore. Around 300 women carry the mask through the streets as part of the parade. The festival features two shrine mikoshi and 30 to 40 town mikoshi in addition to the tengu mikoshi, which are moved to the sounds of lively festival music.
