Title: Exact date of the Nagano Festival in September 2013
Post by: ginny22 on July 13, 2013, 06:07:11 PM
I would appreciate if someone could tell me what the exact date is for the Nagano Sept Festival is on this year 2013. I have gone on the Nagano Go website and cannot find what date the exact date for the September Festival. Some say it is on the 23rd of Sept some say 26th of Sept but nothing for the year 2013.

There are a few festivals in September Ginny. Where specifically?

I am presuming you mean Go-Nagano (which is the English website for Nagano) as compared to naganogo (which is a local Nozawa website). I have spoken to the Go-Nagano admin and they need more information to help you.

Hi
Thank you for responding to my question and I am so sorry for being vague. I saw the festival on a go-nagano blog
called Kamiyamada’s quaint Fall Festival to be held on September 26th http://www.go-nagano.net/blog/?p=3089
However it was posted in 2010 by Tyler. I was hoping to find out if or when this festival will be held in Sept 2013 as we will be in Japan during that time. It looks like a great festival.
Thanks again ginny

The festival will be held again in September Ginny but the date has not been set yet. Perhaps it would be best to contact the author of the post/blog?

I would also suggest a stay in the town at Kamesei Ryokan (http://secure.myoko-nagano.com/hotel/?refid=4995&rs_cid=-246073&rs_page=1&rs_m_km=km&needLiveRates=true&rs_hid=b_291700&rs_prevpage=1). Very popular ryokan with a well known American innkeeper (who is also author of the post above).
