Aizu Tajima Gion-sai Festival will be held between July 22 to 24 this year. The highlight of the festival is the Nanahokai procession, during which women dressed elegantly in bridal kimono make their way to the town’s shrine.

Aizu Tajima Gion-sai Festival is designated an Important Intangible Folk Cultural Asset, and is counted as one of Japan’s three major Gion Festivals, along with Gion Festival in Kyoto.
