Matsushiro Sanada Jumangoku Festival - Nagano

This autumn festival honors ten generations and over 250 years of good governance of the Sanada clan in Matsushiro.
The main attraction of the festival is the lively Sanada jumangoku gyouretsu parade where more than 250 people dress up as samurai and princesses and walk through the town. Become popular thanks to the NHK TV long-running drama series “Sanada Maru.” The town of Matsushiro awaits your visit.
