Tatara Festival | KAWAGUCHI
August 31 @ 10:00 - September 1 @ 20:00Free
The Tatara festival is the largest annual festival in Kawaguchi with over 160 stalls and approximately 150,000 people attending. However, this year, 2019, there are three major changes which will surely influence the turn out.
What are the three changes to the Tatara Festival in 2019?
For one, the date has changed. The festival was always held in early August, but this year it is being held on Saturday the 31st of August and Sunday the 1st of September.
Secondly, the location has changed from Kawaguchi Autorace site to Skip City.
And thirdly, due to the location change, there will be no fireworks. Kawaguchi has a new annual fireworks display in May that started from this year, 2019.
Tatara festival access
There used to be a free shuttle bus to the event area from Kawaguchi, Nishikawaguchi, Warabi and Hatogaya stations.
It remains to be seen if there will be the same services for the new location. They will continue this service to the new event site at Kawaguchi Skip City.
