    Matsudaira Spring Festival


    Apr 13 and Apr 14, 2019

    • \r\n\r\n\r\n

    The Shigaku-sai, a sort of dress rehearsal, is held on the Saturday before April 17 in advance of the full festival. The Shigaku-sai festival starts in the evening and involves scooping of water from the traditional well in which Matsudaira was first bathed, dedications of fireworks, and other bold and mystical sights. The main festival the day after involves a portable shrine being carried from Toshogu Shrine to Kogetsu-in Temple.
