Every six years, the Honorable Pillars Festival in Nagano, Japan attracts thousands of people who participate in moving 16 massive fir tree trunks from the mountains to the shrines of Suwa. To reach the shrines, the trunks are pulled with ropes and ridden down steep hills, through a river and across the streets, in the 1,200-year-old festival.
