    Taga Taisha spring festival was held gorgeously under fine weather. When I heard the drum sound in the distance which let people know the procession starts, I had an exhilarating feeling. The drum sound gradually got louder and I could hear special guys' voices energetically. The procession was approaching. About thirty horses with people who were wearing traditional dress passed by in front of me, clattering of hoofs. It was really nice and I enjoyed it very much. Batoh-nin (Horse bead man) this year was Mr. N. Nishiyama who is a president of a textile company in Toyosato. Most of the people in the procession were wearing face coverings and it looked so warm under a bit of strong sunlight.
