☆★☆Tokasan Festival / Yukata Festival☆★☆

June 3rd(Fri)~June 5th (Sun)

With its nearly 400-year tradition, the Tokasan Festival is one of the three major festivals in Hiroshima. The Chuo-dori area around Enryuji Temple, which is located in Naka-ku, Hiroshima City, is crowded with many people with many stalls lining the street. This festival is also well-known as marking when people in Hiroshima are supposed to begin wearing yukata (casual summer kimono). Many people in elegant yukata with various patterns, such as flowers and vivid geometrical shapes, can be seen at the venue.

Concurrent with the opening of the Tokasan Festival, the Yukata Festival is held in the central area of Hiroshima City. This festival is enlivened with dance performances and stage events. There are also some corners for yukata dressing or fixing a yukata that has come loose (free of charge).
