Higashiura Odai Festival
Date : 04/18/2020
A Festival to Honor a Hero’s Mother
Every year Higashiura-Town holds the “Odai Festival” in honor of "Odai-no-Kata," mother of Hero Tokugawa Ieyasu and a native of those parts. The celebration involves a procession of about 2km by both margins of the Myotokuji River, known as the "Odai Stroll Pathway," under the shadow of 400 trees of sakura cherry blossoms planted along both embankments, all in full bloom by the time of the event.
