Nagoya-jo Autumn Festival

The birthday of Gifu sure is distracting, since I noticed these seasonal events only now, fortunately still on time to remind you about the Autumn Edition of the Nagoya-jo Festival happening right now in Nagoya until November 23!
The idea is celebrating the Nagoya Castle and its surrounding four times a year, so to provide extra visibility to this touristic attraction.
The main events feature local products degustations, idol concerts, sport events, seasonal traditions and the like. You can check the schedule for the whole thing here.

Kaiju vs Demon Lord of the Sixth Heaven

Too bad that this summer we were too busy melting due the extra heat, otherwise we would have checked that special event during the Godzilla Exhibition in Nagoya featuring Nobunaga!
The pretext was the exhibition Godzilla at the Museum, hosted at the Nagoya City Museum from July 15 to September 3.
Nobunaga from the Nagoya Busho-tai had the chance to meet fans and pose with them for extra fun pictures on August 18. Isn't our favourite warlord quite "territorial"?!

In case you long for more pictures, here you can find a "report" on the Busho-tai's blog, and here you can find more high resolution pictures of Nobu's performance, from which the picture that we used here on this post comes from.

Nobunaga 450 Digest ( 四 )

Here we are with our report about the current celebrations for the 450th Anniversary of Gifu city, that are, as you know, completely Nobu-related.
This season we use Hiroshi Fujioka striking a pose during the parade of the Gifu Nobunaga Matsuri as the "cover" of our fourth report for this year!
