Matsue Irish Festival – 松江アイリッシュ・フェスティバル
This year's date: 8 March 2020
As the first Japanese home of Irish writer Lafcadio Hearn
, Matsue has close ties with Ireland and celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with an annual parade, one of the most enthusiastic events of its kind in Japan. The parade includes sections on boat and on land, and is followed by traditional Irish music and céili dancing.
