Yamagata Hanagasa Festival山形花笠まつり


Teams of dancers perform elegant dances to traditional ballads and cheerful calls while waving hanagasa flower hats adorned with safflowers, the prefectural flower of Yamagata. Groups consisting of local neighborhood association members, led by gorgeous parade floats and wearing matching costumes, dance in uniform, creating a stunning sight. Each year over 10,000 dancers participate in this Yamagata summer tradition.

          Yamagata Areas


          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
