Name: IizakKenka Matsuria Hachiman Festival

Date: October 1st (Saturday)

Area: Fukushima-shi

Address: Yawata-1 Iizakamachi, Fukushima, Fukushima Prefecture 960-0201

Details: The Iizaka Rotary Club would like to invite you to their Hachiman Festival in Iizaka on Saturday, October 1st! This will be an opportunity for foreigners to carry a mikoshi (portable shrine) through the streets of Iizaka while wearing a happi and seeing all the other beautiful floats being prepared for the Kenka Matsuri at night. Most often, those who carry mikoshi in festivals are people whose families contribute to the municipal association fund, which most foreigners do not participate in, so carrying a mikoshi is a valuable experience! Exchange students from Fukushima University will also be participating, so it is a good chance to expand horizons and meet new people!
