Haru-no-Jimmusai

(Spring Festival honoring Emperor Jimmu)

2018jimmu

Jimmu is the mythical First Emperor of Japan, whom legend depicts, overcame exceedingly impossible odds to finally establish his throne at what is now Kashiharajingu Shrine.

Since old times, communities around the vicinity of Kashihara City held local spring festivals affectionately titled 'Jimmu-san', to mark the coming of Spring, and in extension, the start of the farming cycle.

In order to preserve the tradition, the government came up with 'Haru-no-Jimmusai' (literal translation: Spring's Jimmu Festival). Held annually in April around Kashiharajingu Shrine, it is one of the biggest community festivals in Central Nara. With an average turnout of 40,000 attendees every year, 2017 saw a record of 100,000 visitors over the 3-days the festival was held.

** Haru-no-Jimmusai is held annually in April, with actual dates varying every year.
