The Hikosan River is the site of the "Kawawatari Shinko Festival" held every year on the third Saturday in May and the following day at Fuji Hachimangu Shrine, one of the five major festivals in Fukuoka Prefecture and designated as Intangible Folk Cultural Asset No. 1 by Fukuoka Prefecture.
The festival began during the Eiroku period (1558-1570), when an epidemic broke out in the village of Ita, and people prayed to the shrine, the local deity, for an end to the epidemic, and the shrine was dedicated to the people in return for their prayers.
