Kawagoe Matsuri Outing – October 15th

Often called “Little Edo,” Kawagoe City in Saitama Prefecture is famous for its traditional Edo Period (1603-1867) atmosphere. Twenty FCCJ members representing five countries were invited to observe Kawagoe Matsuri (Festival) on October 15 by Mr.Yoshiaki Kawai, Mayor of Kawagoe City.

Although bursts of heavy rain prevented the majestic and colorful parade of floats along the city’s historic Kurayashiki Street, tour members were able to see a special performance of dancers and traditional music provided by drummers and flute players.
