[Samurai & Ninja Festival 2018]

Rediscover your love for samurai and ninja! A day full of excitement

The festival will begin with the "Dai Musha Gyoretsu", where samurai, ninja, and kacchu armor squads from all over the nation get together, followed by powerful performances by modern "samurai" and "ninja". A variety of events will be held, including collaborative projects by different squads, sword battles, combat lessons where you can experience "slaying" and "being slain", hawking and matchlock gun demonstrations, samurai armor to try on, ninja experiences, and much more! Booths with gourmet food and tourist information will be there, too. A stamp rally linked to a smartphone app, "Aichi Sengoku Meguri", will also be held. People who have gathered stamps at each samurai-related tourist facility in the prefecture and visit the event venue can take part in a lottery offering extravagant prizes, including a Quo card worth 5,000 yen. Whether you're coming with family, or are yourself a big fan of the Sengoku period, this event will be a blast! Come experience the laughter and excitement.
