In 2016, 33 festivals around Japan were declared UNESCO intangible cultural properties, all of which feature ornate parade floats, traditional music, and celebrations. Sunari Matsuri, based in Kanie, is unique for its waterborne float, covered in dozens of lanterns and bearing charms and good luck amulets for observers. To celebrate its recent designation, JFF has organized a new English-friendly tour, which you can experience while wearing the traditional Japanese summer festival attire: a yukata, yours to keep after the event. Family friendly, and perfect for people nervous navigating a festival in Japanese. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this Edo-period culture!
