Saio Festival

From to 10:00 - 21:00

This festival is held every year on the second Saturday and Sunday in June. It is a big event named after the “Saio” that existed in Meiwa Town (about the unmarried woman who served the Amaterasu god of Ise Shrine on behalf of the Emperor) will be held. A procession heads from the capital towards the Imperial Palace and the queue of Saioh’s followers are reproduced. Attractions such as Meiwa Taiko drums and traditional Gagaku music also contribute to the atmosphere of this festival.
