August 2014

Nagoya Festival is the biggest autumn event in Nagoya. The main event is gorgeous parade featuring the Three Feudal Lords (Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu).  You can also enjoy various venue events, such as Great Gathering of Local Samurai Groups and Local Idols.
This festival illustrates the atmosphere of Japanese festivals in the olden days, primarily using the Chochin (paper lanterns) that are used during the Obon holidays. You will enjoy bon dancing (which varies in style according to region in Japan), a beer garden, and fair booths (a common scene at Japanese festivals) for a fun night in Nagoya. Also, as the festival is held at Nagoya Castle, it is unique in that visitors are given a close-up view of Nagoya Castle, the main keep of which is open and illuminated at night.
