Takayama festival

This very famous festival in Japan takes place twice a year, in April and October. The Takayama matsuri attracts cohorts of visitors from all over the archipelago and even from the mainland Asia, the spectacle is so impressive: 23 sumptuously decorated floats parade through the streets of the city. Depending on the year, the climate sometimes means that the cherry blossoms are also part of the game.
