In the dynamic Kawagoe Festival (Kawagoe "matsuri"), spectacular floats are pulled through the town and many pass nearby one another. The festival, dating back some 370 years, is registered as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage and designated as a national Important Intangible Folk Cultural Asset. You can experience it at any time if you visit the Kawagoe Festival Museum. Two of the actual floats from the festival are on display in the museum's hall and a large screen shows a video that lets visitors sense the passion and excitement of the day's festivities.
