Hamamatsu Festival

10:00am – 3:00pm
Free

The Hamamatsu Festival celebrates the birth of children, and falls over the annual holiday Children’s Day (May 5th). There are two distinct parts to the festival.

The first is a procession of floats that resemble small temples, each carrying musicians. The processions happen in the early evening from 6:30pm on each of the 3 days of the festival. The second part of the festival is a huge kite flying festival with each neighbourhood competing with their own giant kite.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
