Funassyi is set to attend the festival on Sunday the 26th. Other characters attending this year (2017):
Last year they even have mascots participating from different countries around the world including Germany, Taiwan and America. Last year over 40 mascots from overseas attended this Guinness World Record Holding event. The biggest number of participants from overseas they had to date. Will there be even more this year!? The festival is also known for its gourmet.

You can find some really unique “only in Japan” events coming up in Saitama. Most of the content I provide is translated from official websites that have no English page. My only aim is to help non-Japanese speaking foreigners living in Saitama (and those commutable from Saitama in places such as Tokyo and Gunma) get the most out of all the great things Saitama has to offer.
