Cancellation of Sasara Mai and Sasara Tourism Event 2022

ささら舞・ささら観光行事 2022 中止について

Today, August 15th, the "Farewell Bon Event Sasara Dance" was scheduled.

Due to the expected bad weather, we have decided to cancel the event.

We are very sorry to all of you who have been looking forward to it.

Thank you for your understanding.

The "Sasara Dance" in the Kakunodate district of Semboku City , which has a history of over 400 years, is now held as one of the Obon events every year to pray for a new Buddha and a bountiful harvest.

This year, it will be held for the first time in three years since it was canceled due to the corona disaster, and it will be held for the purpose of passing down this historical traditional event to the future, as well as for the memorial service of the ancestors.
