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! Baked Okukuji Shamo (a type of game fowl) rice bowls and prize-winning Ryugasaki Croquettes are just a couple of the sumptuous foods you can try at the festival. There will be a Yosakoi dance performance on the street in front of Daigo Station (Daigo eki mae doori), an Ibaliger show, and you can even try riding a Segway!
