Overview
More
Paul Rusch was an American who lived in Yatsugatake and Kiyosato after WWII and devoted himself to the reconstruction of Japan and the spread of democracy. This festival, originally created by Rusch himself as a source of motivation for local residents, is now dedicated to his memory. It is held each autumn in Kiyosato, Hokuto, Yamanashi Prefecture. The festival is inspired by the long-standing tradition of Thanksgiving and harvest festivals in America. Various fairs and markets are held, such as a county fair, the Takahara Market, and a craft market. Close to eighty shops and studios exhibit at these fairs. There are also performances by professional musicians, and concerts by a local orchestra and choral group, with the beautiful sounds of music echoing through the clear and open skies of the Yatsugatake Mountains.
