A small, but very welcoming local festival in Ushita organised
rather loosley around the hozuki Chinese lantern plant.
Ushita is located a short bus ride (#6) from the city center,
this festival is held along the pedestrianized main shopping
Although many of the city’s main festivals are held around
this time of year this smaller festival has a fun, relaxed and
Most festival goers are wearing colorful jimbei or yukata
summer festival wear, there are many good and cheap food
and drink stalls, live performances on stage- everything from
kids hip-hop to 1950’s Rock-n-Roll to taiko drum troupes.
