The Kawagoe Matsuri is held over 2-days every year on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday of October. What makes the Kawagoe Festival popular throughout Kanto is the fact that the mikoshi and festival floats move down the main street of the warehouse district with crowds gathered either side of the street creating a time-slip back to the Edo period. Indeed, the festival has even been registered as a National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property. The main event is the hikkawase (曳っかわせ), a sort of face-off between the floats to see which is best at the traditional hayashi performance. The hikkawase takes place from 7pm on the Saturday and 6:30pm on the Sunday.
