Inuyama Festival


The Inuyama Matsuri is held at the beginning of April in the city of Inuyama in Aichi Prefecture.

Coinciding with the blooming of the cherry blossoms, the festival features processions of three leveled dashi — traditional wheeled floats. The festival dates back to 1635 and was officially recognized by the Japanese government in 2006 as an “Intangible folk cultural property” — presumably for the insurance.

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