Nagasaki Kunchi

Nagasaki Kunchi

Nagasaki Kunchi is a special festival of the Suwa Shrine celebrated annually in Nagasaki on October 7th and ends on the 9th of the same month. This 400 year old festival incorporates aspects from Dutch, Chinese and Portugal cultures, which have heavily influenced the city’s history. Traditional Japanese dances along with dragon dances involving different style floats are performed by different groups of participants. While some performances are quiet and peaceful, others can get out of control and hectic. Although Nagasaki is located in Kyushu, which is rather far away from the Honshu Island of Japan, but Kyoto and Sakai culture also contribute to this local festival. Various city districts participate with dance and performances by represented groups once every seven years. Every district has their own special traits of performance, thus providing visitors a fresh view of the same festival annually celebrated in Nagasaki.
