Hyakumangoku


Dusk
Floating
Candle-lit lantern
Asanogawa River

Reenacting
Triumphal entrance
Lord Toshiie
Kanazawa Castle

Hundreds of participants
Period costumes
A famous actor
The leading role

Shishimai
Lion dances
Ladder-top acrobatics
The Koga fire men

Tea ceremonies
A famous torch-lit
Open air Noh performance
Concluding concert

Yasaka Shrine
Kawaramachi, Oike
Teramochi Dori street
Kanazawa City
