Yugawara Yassa Festival

On Sat. Aug. 2nd, the Sirius Odawara Marching Band participated in the Yugawara Yassa Festival. This festival is the biggest event of the Yugawara hot spring resort area, with mikoshis (portable shrines) parading with shouts of "Yassa Mossa".

Although there was extreme heat of over 30℃ by midday, it began to decline and a cool wind had been blowing when the parade started in the evening. The audience in front of us cheered during the parade and we enjoyed this event so much. We would like to thank all of the support staff.
