NEWS & EVENTS
August is the month of festivals in Japan and here in Utsunomiya, we celebrate our own festival called Miya Matsuri or Utsunomiya’s own Tanabata Festival. Like any other festivals, you can see a lot of people wearing traditional attire called yukata, a lot of street performances by the locals, and portable shrines (mikoshi) being carried around Utsunomiya’s main road.
This was the students’ first festival or matsuri experience. For students with part time job during that time, it was very busy yet worth the experience!
