Another summer has come at last and a great many festivals are expected in the Kansai area. Although several major traditional events have been canceled in these recent few years, there are plenty more small events in local villages definitely worth attending. Local events will attract only modest crowds and can be extremely enjoyable and safe, but rather than publishing so many of them here, you might like to investigate happenings in your own area of interest.
Following is a list of the major Kansai events expected to attract more than 10,000 people:
July 23 Sat Ashiya , Ayabe Minazuki and Otsu, Shiga
July 25 Mon Tenjin Matsuri July 31 Sun Minato Maizuru Chattamatsuri
