Cool Japan Guide / Festivals in Japan in August (3)

Yamagata Hanagasa Matsuri

Dates: August 5th-7th
Place: From Tokamachi Corner to the front of Bunshokan Hall.
City: Yamagata City, Yamagata Prefecture

Although it was first held as a festival in 1964 so is relatively new, the Yamagata Hanagasa Matsuri attracts more than 1 million spectators over three days and is now considered one of the major festivals of Tohoku (Fukushima, Miyagi, Iwate, Aomori, Yamagata and Akita prefectures).

Dates: August 6th-8th

Similar events are organized throughout the nation, but the festival held here is the most famous of all. Unique to Sendai are the Seven Ornaments, which embody prayers for progress in studies or calligraphy, the wellbeing of one's family, good health and longevity, prosperous business, a large catch and a rich harvest. ...
