[Samurai & Ninja Festival 2017]
Samurai culture as entertainment bursting with realism.
The event begins when Bushotai and Ninjatai groups from all over the nation, along with armored knights from the western world, take to the field in the "Dai Musha Gyoretsu", followed by powerful performances by modern "samurais". Highlights include a reenactment of the "Battle of Komaki-Nagakute" and a battle fought by knights in western armor. It's all so realistic that you almost feel as if you have slipped back in time. You can really feel the spirit and culture of the samurais, both through programs that offer armor and ninja costume dressing-up experiences, and at the stalls which offer food and more.
