Tsumago Feudal Procession

Kiso River Valley Area 文化文政風俗絵巻之行列


To commemorate the successful preservation of the post town’s historical buildings, Tsumago-juku initiated this annual procession of people dressed in feudal-era costumes. Samurai, porters, monks, horsemen, over 130 people make for a photographer’s delight with Tsumago’s rows of old wooden houses as a backdrop. The highlight is the bride on horseback with her train of assistants. The procession starts at Watashima District at 10:30am stopping at Tsumago-juku for lunch before continuing on to O-Tsumago.
