There are a lot of really cool festivals in Japan. However, the one that is nearest and dearest to my heart is the Shingen-Ko Matsuri (信玄公祭り), which takes place in Kofu every spring. Perhaps it’s because Kofu is the first place I lived in Japan. In any event, I was there for the 17th and 29th renditions of the festival. I was many months too late to catch the 42nd version, advertised in today’s photo. The 48th edition will happen next year.

I did not know what Manihoto (摩尼宝塔) was when I took today’s photo more than five years ago. Doing a little research revealed this.
