Aug/3 - 4, 2019 Kesenuma Port Festival3.7
from 8/3 '19 to 8/4 '19
Kesenuma City is located north of Miyagi Prefecture, and famous for rich nature such as Ria coastline.
And Kesenuma has one of the biggest fishing ports in Japan, and fresh seafood is unloaded at Kesenuma Port every morning.
On August 3 & 4 in 2019, the Kesenuma Port Festival is held at Kesenuma City.
On the first day, around 3,000 people gather to dance "Hamarainya Dance", which means "Join us!".
And on the second day, people in traditional costumes parade through the town. Then from the evening, there are a blast of drums all along the inner bay drumming the night away, decorated giant lantern ships “unzura,” and a finale of 2,400 fireworks with our wish for further reconstruction of Kesennuma.
The must-see event is "Uchibayashi Daikyoen", the great drumming contest which about 600 taiko drum are performed at same time.
During the festival, Kesenuma Port is surrounded with taiko drum sound and fireworks light.
