Nakamachi’s popular Japanese culture event from last year is back again this November!
Spend the day in Matsumoto! Participate in fun hands-on activities, such as playing the shamisen or a traditional geisha game; try out a ninja blowgun; make a wooden glider; drink some local sake; and more! You can also see an awesome Japanese swordsmanship demonstration, shamisen and Japanese drum performances, professional kendama players, and a parade of Japanese warriors. The event is family friendly.
See all the activities and schedule of demonstrations and performances on the event flyer. Since Nakamachi is just down the street from Matsumoto Castle, you can also check out the Citizens’ Festival happening on the same day. Certain activities will be cancelled in the event of rain.
Free Sticker Campaign – Starting Oct. 22
Grab some cool stickers when you go to Nakamachi Street after visiting Matsumoto Castle (hold on to your admission ticket stub)!
You can get the first sticker by simply showing your ticket stub at Kurassic-kan or at the Nakamachi Shopping Street Association Office. You can get the other versions when you purchase/use a service or get a bite to eat at participating shops.
See the flyer for more information. The campaign will last until stickers run out.
