Mikoshi parades are an indispensable element of Japanese culture. A mikoshi is used as a vehicle for a Shinto god during the parades.
Halloween is right around the corner, but for those of us who can’t wait, Misawa Town will be hosting an early spooky event to get the festivities started.
Just 30-minutes from MCAS Iwakuni, Yanai Town will host Kingyo Chochin Matsuri (goldfish lantern festival) on Aug. 13.
