Daigo is one of Ibaraki’s most picturesque towns, and there is no better time of year to visit than autumn, when the colours of the changing leaves paint the town red. Head down to the Okukuji Daigo Festival and enjoy Daigo’s delicious local cuisine against this brilliant seasonal backdrop! There will be a food sampling party featuring Hitachi Beef and Okukuji Shamo (a type of game fowl), both known as high quality and especially delicious varieties of meat. Local specialties, sake, and beer will also be on sale, and there will be tons of hands on activities to take part in!

There will also be a Japan Agriculture Festival held in the Daigo Town Hall parking lot that weekend, so you can check that out too! Furthermore, there will be a stamp rally in the Daigo Shopping District, a Yosakoi dance performance on the street in front of Daigo Station (Daigo eki mae doori), and a short film festival at the Daigo Bunka Fukushi Kaikan (Daigo Culture and Welfare Hall). You certainly won’t run out of things to do!
