If you have been in Aomori for a while, you should know that if Aomori city = apples then Towada = horses. The Towada Horse Club had a festival on June 12th. There was a lot of American influences (including American Flag decorations, one of which was upside down, we asked them to fix it and they apologized and fixed it right away).
There were English and Western style riders, opportunities to ride horses, a motorcycle show (many Harley-Davidson bikes!), a martial arts show and lots, and lots of dancing.(Western and Japanese styles ).
Please hover your mouse over the pictures to read short descriptions.
For me, the Towada Horse Festival kicked off the start of Festival season in Aomori. I hope to go to many that I missed last year!
