The Samurai Festival in 2016


Hello everyone!
Join the Samurai Festival, which was one of the most popular Another Japan’s events last year. Come feel the Samurai spirit there! The 5th battle of Kawanakajima is truthfully re-enacted in this Festival. We don’t only wear the Japanese armor but also act out a sword fight. It will definitely be an exciting and unique experience.
With approximately 900 people expected to participate in this amazing day, you will also have amazing interactions with people from all over Japan as well as internationally!

-About the battle of kawanakajima
Yamanashi Prefecture, known as ‘Kai’ in that era, was governed by Takeda Shingen . Takeda was a talented leader and had a worthy rival, Uesugi Kenshin. Uesugi was also a poweful leader in north-central Japan. The battles of kawanakajima over the course of 12 years are especially famous between them. The 4th battle was the toughest among them.

去年企画して人気だったお祭り、川中島合戦戦国絵巻に参加して侍を体感しよう!このお祭りは5回に渡り繰り広げられた「川中島の戦い」の死闘の中で一番激しかったと言われる4回目の合戦を史実に基づき忠実に再現したものです。鎧を着て行進するだけでなく、刀を使った殺陣もあるので、きっと貴重な体験になります。
当日は900人が参加するような大きなお祭りになるので、Another Japanでの国際交流だけでなく、色々な地域から参加してくる人たちとの交流も楽しみの一つです。
