Tsugaru No Saiten Hirosaki Neputa “SHOUKI”Dance/Performance
Neputa, which illuminates the summer sky of Tsugaru region with high spirits, will come back to the festival again this year. We will express what our homeland is like through our stage performances, exhibits, friendship exchange and participation in the grand parade. When you hear cheering voices of “Ya-Yado,” that means Neputa is making a grand entrance.
