The 2021 Shitaragahara Battlefield Festival has been cancelled.

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 on these plains, called Shitaragahara, on June 29th, 1575. At this historically important place, every year the Shitaragahara Preservation Council holds a re-enactment featuring elementary and junior high school students of the region, all of them wearing samurai armor and seeking to accurately dramatize the happenings of that pivotal day in the country's history.
