A mikoshi carried on the shoulder by the Gion festival is a mikoshi of the Naritasan Shinshoji Temple which assumed Dainichi Buddha a sacred image.

It was a mikoshi turn in the circumference that temple town 7 mosquito-cho paid, and the young man in each town carried it on the shoulder in old days. However, the bearer of the mikoshi came to be short year by year with each town, and the staff and a volunteer of the Naritasan came to carry it on their shoulder from 1920.
