EventsYamagata Hanagasa Matsuri (Hanagasa Festival)

Accompanied by strong voices shouting "yassho makasho!" and the dynamic sounds of hanagasa taiko drums, dancers in colorful costumes dance in a dynamic manner. Hanagasa, or straw hats decorated with safflowers which the dancers wear, move like a wave and fascinate viewers in the evening of midsummer.
