A festival honoring the resting souls of "Sengoku", the Warring States period

Known as the battle that first saw the massive use of matchlock muskets in Japan, the Battle of Nagashino took place at these plains, called Shitaragahara, in June 29th 1575. At this historically important place, every year the Shitaragahara Preservation Council holds the re-enactment featuring Elementary and Junior High Schools students of the region, all of them wearing samurai armor and seeking to accurately dramatize the happenings of that fatidic day in the country's history.
