Fussa Tanabata Festival

Tanabata is celebrated in most places during July – but other places (like Fussa) celebrate it at a time closer to the timing on the traditional calendar. This particular event was started in 1951 for the development of the local shopping district. There will be a wide range of events centered around Fussa Station such as a Princess Orihime Contest and various parades including a folk dance parade. Character shows and other events will also be held on a specially constructed stage at the Okano Plaza. Approximately 100 stalls manned by residents will line the street.
