A festival honoring the mother of Japan's hero

This festival is held far and wide in the town of Higashiura on Odai no Michi Street along the Myotokuji River and in Odai Park. Its main highlight is the Odai Parade, held in honor of Higashiura-born Odai no Kata, birth mother of the final unifier of Japan, Tokugawa Ieyasu.
