34th Kon-Kon Kutsu Ichi (“Shoe Festival”)

29th Apr–30th Apr, 2017 9:00am – 5:00pm

For two days every year, local shoemakers gather at Tamahime Inari Shirne for the Kon-Kon Kutsu Ichi (“Shoe Festival”). In a gesture of customer appreciation, these companies sell their goods (men’s shoes, women’s shoes, sneakers, sandals, bags, belts, leather accessories and material, etc.) for between 60 and 90 percent off their retail value. In addition to the market, visitors can participate in a ceremony giving thanks for old shoes and enter a raffle for various prizes. There’s also a parade featuring floats in the shape of men’s and women’s shoes. A part of the proceeds from purchases will go to the Japan Red Cross.
