Yachi Donga Festival やちどんがまつり
Dignified parade and court music and dance
Yachi Hachiman-gu has about 400 years of history and the court music and dance dedicated to Hachiman-gu at the stone stage on the premise has been inherited through family of Hayashi in Tennoji tradition for more than 1,100 years.
You can appreciate not only its court music and dance, which is counted as one of the four main bugaku in Japan,
but also several gorgeous festival performances such as Gaisen-yakko, Chigo-gyoretsu, and Hayashi-yatai.

This historical festival was used to be counted as one of the three main festivals in Yamagata.
