Overview
More
It is said that when a retainer raised lanterns in memory of Matsudaira Naritsune, Governor of Yamato and lord of Kawagoe Castle, this spread to the castle town, and this evolved into a festival of elaborately decorated lanterns. It was suspended for a period but revived in 1957. Centered round the old-fashioned warehouse buildings that line the streets of central Kawagoe, the whole town is decorated with colorful lanterns. During the festival period, in addition to events such as a historical parade, stage performances of music and dance, there is also a variety of crowded stalls. In this festival you can enjoy the atmosphere of the emotionally rich town they call Little Edo Kawagoe.
