Ginowan cancels Hagoromo Festival

Ginowan City has cancelled this year’s Hagoromo Festival scheduled for Sep. 29- 30 at Ginowan Seaside Park.

Organizers cite the Okinawan governor’s and Ginowan Mayor’s elections that will take place on Sep. 30th as the reason for the cancellation of the event. They say it would be difficult to have city workers to provide services associated with the festival simultaneously with the elections.

The popular Hagoromo Kachashi Dance Festival that has been a part of the Hagoromo Festival for the past 30 years is also cancelled.
