Spring Fujiwara Festival

Hiraizumi Town

Southern Iwate

The Minamoto no Yoshitsune Higashidari Emaki is a nationally known festival that recreates the prosperity of the three generations of the Fujiwara clan. In particular, the ``Minamoto no Yoshitsune East Parade'' to be held on the 3rd recreates the scene in which when Yoshitsune escaped from his brother Yoritomo and arrived in Hiraizumi, Fujiwara no Hidehira himself happily greeted him, and the people rejoiced. I am. Every year, a popular entertainer plays the role of Yoshitsune, drawing loud cheers from the tourists who line the roadsides. In addition, various other events are held, such as a children's parade, local performing arts, and the Benkei Chikaramochi Competition.
