Tohoku area

There are many big festivals in Japan.

In the Tohoku area, there are three famous big festivals: Nebuta festival in Aomori prefecture, Shoto festival in Akita prefecture, and Sendai Tanabata festival in Miyagi prefecture.

These festivals take place in summer, hoping for a bountiful harvest in the Fall.

They are called the ‘big three Tohoku festivals’.

Many people come to see them from all over Japan. Although the Japanese summer is hot and humid, the summer festivals in Japan are fantastic experiences you should check out.
