Kawagoe Festival 川越祭り
Held for two days on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday of October, the Kawagoe Festival is Koedo-Kawagoe ’s liveliest event of the year. Famed for its Kurazukuri (traditional architecture) zone, this city is one of the Kanto Region’s foremost sightseeing spots, and it attracts large numbers of visitors each year.

- Hikkawase
The Kawagoe Festival’s biggest highlight: ‘Hikkawase’
As they face each other, the several festival floats compete with each other in a hayashi performance (a traditional Japanese orchestra comprised of flutes, drums, handbells and dancing), cheered on by the excited voices of festival-goers holding aloft paper lanterns.
The excitement reaches its climax with the evening ‘Hikkawase’.
The Kawagoe Festival has developed both by maintaining a history of over 360 years as an invaluable town festival that preserves the style and elegance of the Edo "Tenka Matsuri", as well as by adding its own unique Kawagoe features.
In 2005, the festival was designated as a National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property under the title of ‘Kawagoe Hikawa Festival Float Event’

Great-grandfather went to Kawagoe Fudo every month on the 28th day.
One day he got up early, but somehow got lost on the way in the mountain. Then he remembered that this was a path where foxes cross. He took his flint stone and made a small fire to spend the night. Next morning he found he had been walking in circles in the mountain - bewitched by a fox maybe ?!
