Japanese festivals frequently feature dashi, or floats, that are pulled along or carried as part of the festivities. Many of these floats are extravagantly decorated with dolls and other ornaments, and depending on the region, their names and shapes vary greatly. Yama are those that resemble mountains through the use of towering wooden ornaments, while floats with roofs without those ornaments are known as yatai. In Kansai, those with wheels are called danjiri, and they are pulled around in a prominent, impressive festival in Osaka. The range of different floats is an excellent way to experience the real charm of Japanese festivals.
