  • Be a samurai for a day! Uesugi Festival

The biggest festival of the year in Yonezawa is coming and you can join in the fun!

The Uesugi Festival celebrates the great samurai warrior Uesugi Kenshin – who was a renowned warrior and progenitor of the Uesugi Clan, the clan that ruled over the Yonezawa domain.

Part of the celebration involves a recreation of one of the biggest battles of the warring states period ‘The battle of Kawanakajima’ where Kenshin and Takeda Shingen met on the field of battle. Over 800 people in full samurai armor take to the battlefield and anyone can join in! Viewing is also completely free!
