Historical festival in Ichijodani

In 16th century, Japan was in the civil war period called Sengoku Jidai. Central government has lost its power, and provinces were managed by powerful warlords often fighting among themselves, entering and breaking alliances.

Memory about those times is still preserved by organizing historical festivals. One of them is Sengoku Matsuri in the ruins of Asakura clan in Ichijodani, present-day Fukui Prefecture.
