Okazaki-City [Postponed to Autumn 2021]
Date : April(The first ten days)
The 2021 Ieyasu Procession has been postponed to autumn.
In Okazaki City, birthplace of Unification Hero Tokugawa Ieyasu, the main event right in the middle of the cherry blossom season festivities is the Ieyasu Procession. This event offers a chance to remember not only the legacy of Ieyasu, who unified Japan under one rule through great hardship to establish the foundations for a peaceful 260 years of the Tokugawa Shogunate (the Edo period), but also to acknowledge the performance of the Mikawa warriors, including the four generals serving the Tokugawa Clan. Every year, a different celebrity is chosen to play the role of Ieyasu, so the crowds are always thick with curious, celebrating people.
