Tohoku Six-soul Festival Aomori
We wish the soul of the Tohoku region a successful leap to the bright future.
Six cities from six prefectures in Tohoku region have gotten together to restore peace to the region and those who affected by 3.11 earth quake and Tsunami. Six prestigious local festivals have come together to begin the journey of the Tohoku Six-soul Festival.
The first Tohoku Six-soul Festival took place in 2011 and has been held in Sendai city, Morioka city in 2012, Fukushima city in 2013, Yamagata city in 2014 and Akita city in 2015. As the years have passed, the Tohoku Six-soul Festival has gotten more attention and drawn larger crowds. This has allowed the exciting moments created by the people from Tohoku region to be shown to the entire world.
This year is set to be the last of the Tohoku Six-soul Festivals as the festival will complete its tour amongst the six prefectures in the Tohoku region. The last destination and stage of the festival is to be Aomori city, in Aomori prefecture.
To ensure revival of the Tohoku region, we hold our last festival with our soul and our tremendous gratitude for the enormous support given to Tohoku region since 2011.
Hiroshi Shikanai, Mayor of Aomori city, Executive committee chairperson of Tohoku Six-soul Festival.
