Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Festival

Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Festival is held in commemoration of Lord Maeda Toshiie's entry into Kanazawa castle on 14th June, 1583 (Tensho 11) which laid the foundations of the present day Kanazawa. The main attraction of this Festival is a gorgeous and dazzling parade. Many other traditions of Kanazawa that have been handed down for 400 years are also on display, which makes it the largest annual festival of Ishikawa. This Festival includes events such as Kaga Yuzen Toro-Nagashi (Lantern floating ceremony), Hyakumangoku Odori-Nagashi (a dancing parade), Takigi Noh (traditional Noh performance), tea ceremonies, etc. that make the Festival even more colorful.Kaga Yuzen Toro Nagashi (Lantern Floating Ceremony)Time:First Friday, 19:00-21:00Venue:Asanogawa riverside(close to Hashibacho bus stop)
