This traditional festival heralds springtime in Fukuchiyama.
The castle was originally constructed by samurai Akechi Mitsuhide, and this festival commemorates the re-construction of the castle tower in 1986, renewing successive festivities such as the "Commerce Tourism Festival," the "Science and Sunlight Exposition," and the "Fukuchiyama Demon Festival" as the Fukuchiyama Castle Festival, which continues to this day.
Places known for their association with Akechi Mitsuhide (Fukuchiyama Castle and Goryo Shrine) are the venues for this event, at which visitors can enjoy local Fukuchiyama food, stage shows, parades, and more.
