Minato Matsuri (Nagoya Port Festival)
July 15, 2019

This is the big one! This is the defining festival of a Nagoya summer and takes place on Marine Day, which is a public holiday so you have no excuse to not go at least once. 

There are so many performances, people dancing, floats, stalls to buy food, booze, and dumb trinkets, and people wearing yukata that you will be exhausted by the end of it; try to save some energy to enjoy the massive and impressive fireworks display at the end.
