  • Asuke Festival (Asuke Matsuri)

The 2020 Asuke Festival has been cancelled.

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. Hayashi music players and the strong men pushing the floats complete the wonderful sight!
The festival also features matchlock musketeers displaying firing sessions with real gunpowder and demonstrations of the ancient martial art-dance of the Bo-no-Te. Don't miss this!
