The Omikoshi (お神輿), is a kind of portable shrine in the Shinto religion and is used to transport a God in the streets of the neighborhood to which it belongs normally in summer festivities.
Both men and women and even children carry the Omikoshi on their shoulders. It has the shape of a temple and decorated in bright golden tones .
Before being transported and when rest breaks are made, trestles are used to hold on and facilitate loading and unloading the Omikoshi.
It is striking to see how the different groups that carry their Omikoshi showing their ability to balance it from side to side, even when several groups come together it seems like a competition to show who is stronger and more skillful.
