■ About the Hinomaru Festival <br /> This festival was held for the first time on November 17, 2019, to celebrate the enthronement of His Majesty the Emperor and usher in a bright new era of Reiwa. The event has been well received every year and has been decided to be held for the third time this year.
Since ancient times, Japan has been called the "land of harmony," and people have lived in harmony with each other. Our wish is that now is the time for all Japanese people to unite as one with the spirit of "Wa", support and help each other, and build a bright future.
It is also about preserving the wonderful traditions and culture of Japan that we have inherited from our ancestors and handing them down to the next generation.
Holding up the Hinomaru, the symbol of Japan, we will move forward powerfully toward the future.
With that in mind, we are holding this year's Hinomaru Festival.
