- Ieyasu Procession
The main event right in the middle of the cherry blossom season is the Ieyasu Procession. This festival offers a chance to remember not only the legacy of Tokugawa Ieyasu who unified Japan under one rule through great hardship to establish the foundation for a peaceful 260 years of the Tokugawa Shogunate, but also to acknowledge the performance of the Mikawa warriors including the four generals serving the Tokugawa. Some 1,000 people dressed as warriors and cavaliers along with lord Ieyasu parade through his hometown creating something of an Edo period timeslip like an historic picture scroll. Starting with an opening ceremony at Iga Hachimangu Shrine, the parade marches 3.5 km around the city center and on the riverbed of the Oto River a mock battle and matchlock demonstrations are staged.
