Hassaku Matsuri (Furusato Jidai Matsuri) 八朔祭（ふるさと時代祭り） Yamanashi (Sep.2015)
Hassaku Matsuri is held at Oide Shrine every year on September 1st.
In the Furusato Jidai Matsuri, an accompanying matsuri held as entertainment, a daimyo procession winds its way through the streets.
Participants dressed as samurai retainers, and those playing the role of the princess and the feudal lord bring to life scenes reminiscent of historical picture scrolls.There is also a parade of floats with ornate hangings, the designs of which were sketched by artists such as Katsushika Hokusai, and a sacred dance called Yokkaichiba Kagura.
