Soma Nomaoi Festival 2017

July 21, 2017

This festival is the representative summer festival of Fukushima Prefecture. Hundreds of years ago, horses were trained in the field for military training and the ‘nomaoi’ (horse chasing) was part of this training. Through the Soma Nomaoi Festivals, not only will visitors be able to experience an integral part of Soma area’s culture, but they will also get to feel like they have gone back in time to the age of provincial Japanese wars.
