from 7/20 '19 to 7/21 '19
Toyohama in Minamichita, on the southernmost tip of Aichi Prefecture's Chita Peninsula is known as the No.1 fish catch town in Aichi Prefecture.
The Sea Bream Festival is held on July 20 & 21 in Toyohama area and Nakasu area. Each area makes it's own huge bream from timber and bamboo frames, wrapped in dyed cotton cloth. During the festival, 5 giant breams are carried by local men around the town and seaside. Smaller fish are carried by children adding a certain charm to the boisterous event.
The must-see event is a parade of the fish, carried by up to 60 men dressed in traditional festival garb, happi coats and headbands, all working in rotation through the town, then a mad dash to the seaside.
In addition, there is a massive fireworks display on Saturday night. Enjoy!
