Tōhoku Kizuna Festival


The Tōhoku Kizuna Festival was created in 2017 to remember those affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake. Over the years, the festival has helped to strengthen the bonds between the six capitals of Tōhoku and its people. 

What happens?

On both days, the festival promises to create a fun and vibrant atmosphere through various stage events and local food stalls. Note that these various events take place at different venues, including Sendai West Park and Aobayama Park. 

The main parade, which includes performers from six different Tōhoku cities, takes place on Sunday. It will start at Jozenji-dori and end at Higashi-Nibancho-dori.


This festival is free for everyone to enjoy. For the best views of the parade, you may want to consider getting a paid seat. These cost between ¥6,000 to ¥5,000 and can be purchased through Ticket Pia.
