This was submitted by Richard Watanabe from Arcadia, California, for Discover Nikkei’s Nima-kai Traditions: Matsuri photo activity.


A Nebuta of Takeda Shingen (1521-1573), famous daimyo of the Kai Province. The Nebuta Festival in Aomri, Japan traces its roots to the Heian period (794-1185) in which large paper lantern floats of famous figures in history are created. This was the first Nebuta to be brought to Los Angeles from Aomori, Japan specifically for the 2007 Nisei Week parade and only the second time Nebuta ever left Japan.
