Tohoku Rokkon Festival is the biggest festival in the history of the Tohoku region.

Last year, 4 months after the earthquake, we had 360 thousands visitors coming to the first Rokkon Festival held at Sendai in 2 days, bringing 10 billions of economic benefits to the area. This year's festival will take place at Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture, in May 26th and 27th. This is the second biggest city in Tohoku region next to Sendai.

The 6 festivals coming to the city are listed below. You will definitely want to check the regular festivals held in each prefecture in August after seeing their performance at Tohoku Rokkon Festival.
