Japan Tours in August

Japan Tours in August

The month of August means summer festivals all across Japan, with the northern region of Tohoku engaging in local spectacles of dance, music, fireworks, and specialty cuisine – the Three Great Festivals of Tohoku. The city of Aomori beckons visitors with loud cries of “Rassera!” (Come Join!) to enjoy the Nebuta Festival, a fire festival featuring large illuminated floats constructed of papier-mache called “Nebuta”, which feature famous historical and mythical figures.

Meanwhile, in Akita, the Kanto Festival amazes visitors with incredible feats of balance and skill. Come watch the performers balancing their kanto – long bamboo poles hung with illuminated paper lanterns. The kanto are balanced mainly on the hand, but also on the hip, shoulder, and even forehead. At the festival’s main event, the Night Parades, audience members are treated to over 10,000 lanterns hoisted into the air at once before being invited to try balancing a kanto for themselves.

Every August, Sendai hosts their annual Tanabata Festival. Tanabata is also known as the Star Festival and is connected to the myth of a romantic rendezvous between two star-deities, Hikoboshi (Altair) and Orihime (Vega). Admire the bright and colorful streamer decorations around Sendai - long strips of colored paper covered with hand-written good wishes for the future. One of the top highlights of the event is the Fireworks Display: the impressive spectacle of color and sound involving over 15,000 fireworks that are ignited on the night before the festival.

Experience the largest dance festival in Japan: the Awa Odori, which takes place in August on the island of Shikoku. Hundreds of dance troupes called “Ren” compete by performing incredible choreographed dances, which are accompanied by native Japanese instruments. Some of the dances invite the audience to participate, so you and your traveling group can join in the fun. An August tour of Japan is the best time for enjoying the local culture through the summer festival season, as well as admire the gorgeous nature scenes.
