Obihiro Heigen Festival帯広平原まつり

Event

This festival began as the Heiwa (Peace) Festival and has been held for over 70 years since 1947 and is one of Tokachi's largest festivals and an integral part of summer in Obihiro. Portable shrines for bountiful harvests and flourishing seeds are danced down Heigen-dori Street for the Yumefuruya parade and visitors throw wheat at the palanquins in the Koganeho Nageire. Around 200 musicians from the whole prefecture play in the Heigen Drum Festival; people in various costumes, starting with yukata (summer kimono), then parade down the street doing hand dances in the Obihiro Bon dance. These and many more events, draw lively crowds every single year.

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
