Gorgeous festival floats color the town, along with the blooming cherry blossoms, and “karakuri” marionettes put on a breathtaking performance! Come along and experience this very special 2023 Takayama Spring Festival Tour.

Thought to be around 400 years old, the Takayama Festival is counted as one of the three most beautiful festivals in Japan. It is held every spring and autumn, and it shows-off what is great about the Hida region. The focal point and must-see attraction of the festival are the beautiful festival floats, which are products of the fabulous artisanship of the Hida masters. With elaborate, artistic ornaments, masterfully designed marionettes exhibit incredibly dexterous movements, and clever contraptions for maneuvering them around town. The floats are really masterpieces in their own right! At nighttime, the floats are covered with lanterns, and the parade of these floats creates a beautiful fantasy world completely different from the daytime procession.
