Dive into Japan’s Summer Festival Season
With the new direct flight, travelers from New York can easily immerse themselves in Japan’s rich culture and exciting summer festivals. One of the most anticipated events is the Aizen Festival in Osaka, held from June 30 to July 2. This festival is one of Osaka’s three major summer festivals, alongside the Tenjin Festival and the Sumiyoshi Festival.
The Aizen Festival takes place at Aizendo Shomanin Temple in Osaka and features the vibrant Hoekago Parade. The parade, which dates back to the Edo period, originally featured geishas carried in palanquins praying for business prosperity. Today, the parade includes the Aizen Musume, chosen through a public contest, adding a modern touch to this traditional celebration.
Known as Japan’s oldest summer festival, the Aizen Festival has its origins in 593 AD and marks the beginning of the yukata season in Osaka. It is a unique opportunity to experience a piece of Japan’s history and cultural heritage.
