Overview
More
The Hatsukaesai at Sengen Shrine is Shizuoka City's largest festival. It goes back over 450 years and was considered a major rite of the Sunpu Castle since as far back as the rule of the Imagawa clan. It is held when the cherry blossoms reach their full bloom each year. Portable shrines are paraded about and the local deity is transferred from one point to another. A court dance performed by a child, a rite that is a designated intangible folk culture asset of Shizuoka Prefecture, is also put on. Close to 120 shops and stalls appear along Sengen-dori and within the shrine grounds, plying their wares.
