Photographed during Otariya Festival (春渡祭) at Futaarayama Shrine (二荒山神社) in Utsunomiya city.
Mikoshi is a portable shrine that is occupied by shinto deity - Toyokiiribiko (豊城入彦命) in this case. After the procession in Utsunomiya downtown in the snow storm, this shinto deity in the mikoshi managed to come home (Main Hall of Futaarayama Shrine) without any delay or troubles.
Below is another photo taken during the festival.
And our video.
