Nagoya City Festival

Nagoya City Festival

October
An annual secular festival in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, started by the city's merchants in 1955 to give thanks for their prosperity. It features a parade of about 700 participants depicting historical figures in period costume, among them Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu, the three feudal warlords who unified the country at the end of the 16th century.
