Dashi 山車

Festival car pulled by several dozens people during a matsuri. Typically, musicans playing flute and taiko drums sit in the core, while dancers or leaders stand on the top.

Dashi can be seen at major festivals such as Gion Matsuri in Kyoto, or Narita-san Gion Matsuri in Chiba prefecture.
