The Seki Parade Float Museum opened in 2019 and is host to "The Mountains of Seki". Each July, Seki hosts its annual "Seki Juku Gion Summer Festival" with a large parade featuring traditional Japanese floats. In Takayama, these floats are called "dashi", but in Seki they are known as "yama". "Yama" translates as "mountain" in Japanese the phrase "The mountains of Seki" means to "perform to the best of your abilities". The floats, ie. mountains, of Seki are good examples of this, as they are quite large—any larger and they wouldn't fit down the streets of the city.
