Dashi is a traditional parade float with drawings or wood and paper crafted figures of heroic “mushas” or characters from japanese tales. At this Date Samurai Musha Festival, you can see 11 different dashis parading the streets. Most of the ‘dashi’ will have their own dancers or wadaiko drummers performing their original dance or music. Many different styles so finding your favorite ‘dashi’ will be a good way to enjoy the festival. (And don’t forget to grab a beer at the stands on the streets! Enjoying the festival foods and drinks outside is also a part of the Japanese festivals)
