Amekko Ichi (Candy Festival)

The sweetest festival around

  Amekko Ichi dates back over 400 years and is steeped in legends. According to one such legend, fesitval goers who buy candy from one of the vendors will fend off colds for the remainder of winter. Candy stalls fill the main street and tree branches decorated with candy attached line the sidewalks.
