Suigo Sawara Dashi Kaikan

You can experience the tradition and culture of “Sawara-no Dashi Gyoji (Sawara’s Festival Car Event),” Government-designated Important Intangible Ethnic Cultural Asset.
Sawara Big Festival with a history of more than 300 years is held twice a year in summer (10 festival cars in the Honjuku district) and autumn (14 festival cars in the Niijuku district).
Two festival cars are exhibited in turn at the hall, and you can leisurely see 8-meter tall festival cars made of zelkova entirely from top to bottom.
The panoramic view of the scene of the big festival shown on the three screens is a must-see. Closed: Mondays, in principle.
