[Cancelled] Kamaishi Festival
October 16, 2020 - October 18, 2020
Each year, Kamaishi organizes three days of festivities from the third Friday in October. It’s a long weekend punctuated by the sound of taiko (traditional Japanese drums), the songs of the participants and the sound of oars moving through the waves. Indeed, most of the festival takes place on the water. As Kamaishi is a city with a livelihood based mainly on fishing, it regularly pays tribute to the local deities who have protected its ships and men during the year.
Unfortunately this year’s Kamaishi Festival which we were going to start on third Friday to Sunday in October, 2020 was called off. Please visit the official site for more details.
