The Festivals of Yamagata 

Far and by none, the best opportunity to experience the centuries of rich cultural heritage of Yamagata is through the many vibrant festivals held throughout the year.   


Often unknown beyond their local communities, we at the Hidden Japan would like to extend an invitation for you to experience the passion and beauty of Yamagata's local communities.
