Japan trip 2016 – Nishiki-Machi Matsuri enbu


Last enbu of the trip at the Nishiki-Machi Matsuri (festival). – October 29, 2016.

The founder of the Taisha-ryu, Marume Kurando, retired to farm in Nishiki, a hamlet in Hitoyoshi when he retired from service with the ruling Sagara han and died there in 1629. His memory is still revered so Taisha-ryu is honoured to demonstrate for the local government every year at the annual festival and at other events.
