Hey, it's a street party in the middle of winter!! And, it's really a lot of fun. Come into the downtown area around 10:30am and watch the community groups carry their portable shrines (Japanese: O-mikoshi) around the streets. The tradition of this festival comes from a time when rival warlords, in a gesture of respect and sympathy, provided valuable salt to the Matsumoto area. Food, excitement and fun will keep you warm at this traditional street festival.
Date: January 7th-8th
Hours: Around 10:30am - 5pm
Place: Streets in the downtown
