Kita-Kannon Yama(北観音山)

This float and Minami-Kannon Yama of the neighboring block had alternately participated in the procession every other year from the Onin-no-ran Battle in the 15th century until around 1864.
No other yama or hoko floats participated biyearly in the procession.
This float and Minami-Kannon Yama of the neighboring block had alternately participated in the procession every other year from the Onin-no-ran Battle in the 15th century until around 1864.

No other yama or hoko floats participated biyearly in the procession. It was originally carried on shoulders, but now is drawn. The images of "Yoryu Kannon" (the Goddess of Mercy) and "Idaten" (a guardian deity) are enshrined on the float. As it is not a hoko float, Kita Kannon Yama has "shin-matsu" (a pine tree) instead of a mast-like wooden pole called "shingi". The two pine trees are delivered from Narutaki, the northwestern area of Kyoto. Kita-Kannon Yama and Minami-Kannon Yama draw lots for the pine trees to decide which will belongs to which float. Although some historical documents say that a figure of an "'onagadori' (a long-tailed cock) perches on the third branch on the left side of the float", a pigeon figure perches there now instead. Minami-Kannon Yama has an onagadori figure on its pine tree.
