This year's (2020) "Kakunodate Sakura Festival," "Katakuri Community Town," and "Mizubasho Festival" have been canceled from the perspective of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections. "State of emergency" (April 8th to May 6th) has been issued to 7 prefectures, and some prefectures have requested refraining from going out to other prefectures.

We ask for your cooperation in refraining from going out in order to prevent this new coronavirus infection from infecting yourself, your family, and everyone around you.

We ask for your continued cooperation so that we can overcome this crisis and enjoy the "Kakunodate Sakura Festival," "Katakuri Community Town," and "Water Basho Festival" next year (2021) as before.
