Sunari Festival

Last Saturday, we had the pleasure of taking a group of travelers to experience the Sunari Festival in Kanie, and we saw why it’s earned its spot as a UNESCO important cultural heritage event. In addition to watching the decoration of the stately lantern boat, we were lucky enough to meet the mayors of Kanie and Nagoya. In spite of the massive crowds pouring into this small town, the people of Kanie were extremely welcoming, and we all enjoyed a wonderful evening together.

In autumn we’ll be arranging more tours to visit other local festivals – stay tuned!
