Japanese culture is an integral part of Guam’s history and it is apt that The Japan Autumn Festival, “Akimatsuri” is celebrated with much fanfare in Guam every year. This festival first began in 1977 and has since become a prominent feature in Guam’s cultural calendar. As the event flourished throughout the years, the festival transferred to its current site at Ypao Park in 1983. Akimatsuri has become very popular among local residents well. It is enjoyed by an audience of around 30,000 people, which makes it the largest Japan cultural event on island.
Being held on November 18th, at the Ypao Park, from 2 pm to 9 pm, this festival is the perfect stage to showcase Japanese culture and its’ positive impact on Guam’s culture. With the support of more than 90 corporations and organizations, the Japan Autumn Festival will offer over 40 stalls of remarkable food, drinks, and fun-filled games as well as the Mikoshi Parade and variety of Japanese and local performances on stage.
