Kawagoe Festival川越まつり

Event

Boasting of nearly 400 years of history and tradition, the Kawagoe Festival is a religious rite for the Hikawa-jinja Shrine. Parade floats decorated with intricate dolls proceed through the warehouse lined streets in a stunning spectacle. Highlights include Hikkiawase, fierce musical face-offs between the bands accompanying each float. The evening Hikkiawase is the true climax, as float pullers raise paper lanterns high and dance furiously.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
