  • Asuke Festival (Asuke Matsuri)

A Colorful Festival to Mark Autumn in Asuke!

One of the most busy seasons of the charming town of Asuke, Toyota-City, starts in great style with the Asuke Festival, when beautiful float carriages parade around the streets near the Asuke Hachimangu Shrine displaying the dancing young people aboard them.
