Sansa Matsuri Morioka, Iwate Prefecture [Aug. 1 – 4]


The charm of the festival lies in a parade where taiko drummers and dancers proceed through the city. The origin can be traced back to a legend about a wicked demon. In summer evenings, locals would dress up in fancy costumes and dance and play drums to scare the demon away.
