In Kishiwada City located in the south of Osaka, a very brave "Danjiri Festival" is held every mid September. In this festival, local men parade the city by pulling a lot of Danjiri(floats). Many of the men in Kishiwada think that Danjiri festival is the most important thing in their life. They draw a heavy Danjiri with amazing enthusiasm, and at the intersection they turn Danjiri quickly with tremendous power and unity.
