Kokura Gion Daiko is considered one of the three famous Gion Festivals in Fukuoka Prefecture along with Hakata and Tobata. It has been designated as an Intangible Cultural Property of Fukuoka Prefecture. It is a matsuri that you should not miss because of the well thought out plan that harmoniously blends the decorations of the dashi (festival float) and the majestic taiko. We would like for you to experience this wonderful performance.
