"Ohayashi" is Japanese traditional playing which roused the movement of the festival car. We can see and hear a lot of "Ohayashi" in all parts of Japan, in case of Mikuni, some amateurs are assembled at the quarter (is on duty the year) requested. They are called "Hayashi-kata" accompanied playing japanese drums (by the quarter's children) with "Yoko-Bue" & "Syami-sen" (japanese guitar).
In complaiance with one quarter, "Eitai-Bayashi" (permanent-bayashi) is played by the quarter's inhabitant at every duty.
