A festival of half-naked men duking it out

Toyota City's Matsudaira area was home to Chikauji, founder of the Matsudaira clan, from which national hero Tokugawa Ieyasu came. Chikauji is locally famous for his prayer for peace throughout the country, something his ninth-generation decendent Ieyasu would actually achieve when he unified warring Japan.
A well exists on the local Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine, from which water was taken to give Ieyasu his first bath, and during this festival, that very water is used to soak the "Mizutama"—a wooden ball said to carry good fortune due to purification in the water. By touching the Mizutama, it is said that like Chikauji and Ieyasu, your wishes too will be granted.
