Not only the main Mikoshi of the shrine, but there are many Mikoshi from all the towns which belong to the shrine. Senkan Mikoshi, the main Mikoshi, will be carried by people of each town. They pass the Mikoshi just like the Olympic torch, and the Mikoshi travels all the towns and returns to the shrine.
