EventsFukushima Waraji Matsuri (Straw Sandal Festival)

This festival is named after the huge waraji traditional straw sandals, which are dedicated to Ashio Shrine, to wish for physically strong legs. The waraji are the largest in Japan and a must-see! Dancing Soda Night, a parade in the evening where hip-hop-style dancers dance to reggae dance songs, is also enjoyable!
