THE Potato Festival is Kutchan’s biggest summer festival and a huge taste of Japanese culture.

There are many events over the weekend-long festival, including taiko-drum performances, fireworks, yosakoi dancing, giant illuminated paper floats, potato-bagging competitions, some traditional music and singing. To satisfy your non-aural/non-visual senses, there are dozens of street vendors selling an assortment of festival foods.
