Toyoake-City [Cancelled in 2021]
Okehazama Historical Battlefield Festival
(Okehazama Kosenjo Matsuri)
Date : 06/05/2021, 06/06/2021
The 2021 Okehazama Historical Battlefield Festival has been cancelled.
Pure historical entertainment! An impressive parade of figures gorgeously characterized as samurai and soldiers, and a great samurai battle reenactment, among other interesting events!
In 1560, Oda Nobunaga and Imagawa Yoshimoto fought the important "Battle of Okehazama". Annually in June, the local townsfolk of Toyake-City hold the Okehazama Historical Battlefield Festival (Okehazama Kosenjo Matsuri). Although having originally started as a Memorial Ceremony for the Dead of War, nowadays it is a popular festival with lots of entertainment and interesting attractions where many history fans gather, such as a samurai parade in which anyone can participate, as well as a Samurai Battle Reenactment.
