Doyama floats were first built in 1704 and featured designs based on stories about graceful and mysterious female protagonists called tsutamono. During the Edo period, Doyama floats were also the even-numbered floats of the Yamakasa race, and through their themes, people began to deepen and appreciate their understanding of various Japanese traditions, legends, myths, and classic literature.
