Kawagoe Matsuri Kaikan
The Kawagoe Festival is held annually on the second Saturday and third Sunday of October. Gorgeous floats with elaborately made dolls are paraded around town. When two floats meet, they compete in dancing and making music. This is called “Hikkawase” and is the highlight of the festival. Kawagoe Matsuri Kaikan (festival hall) has an exhibit of 29 of the colorful floats. (admission: 300 yen).
