Kamogawa Spring Fest

WHAT: Spring Festival in Kamogawa City

Celebrate spring and the beginning of the *Reiwa era at this festival in Kamogawa City. There will be various food vendors, dances, musical performances, fireworks, and more!

WHEN: Wednesday, May 1st, 2019

*In addition to the Gregorian calendar system, Japan also has a second calendar system where the years are counted based on the Emperor. Since the current Emperor Akihito will abdicate the throne to his successor, Crown Prince Naruhito, a new era will begin. Therefore, 2019 will no longer be Heisei 31, but starting May 1st will be Reiwa 1.
