Uesugi Matsuri

This Japanese festival, held in Yonezawa, commemorates the illustrious warrior Uesugi Kenshin (1530-1578). He is remembered for his role in a series of five battles, fought on a triangular island in the middle of the Matsukawa River, known as the Battles of Kawanakajima. The Uesugi Matsuri commemorates the warrior and his soldiers with mock battles and various costumed events, as well as a Musha Gyoretsu, a parade of warriors of the Sengoku (Warring States) Era.

"Both men passed away due to natural causes before either accomplished a conclusive victory"

This time war looses. Not sure what happened after both leaders died, but I hope their war died with them saving live. And that people found a way to get on after.

Perhaps it did not work out that way. Perhaps, the war and enmity amongst their soldiers and followers grew and it all became worse like hooliganism which expresses more competition than the actual game it's self. Though I doubt it the battle continued after the two leaders had departed. I think on realising that their army commanders had died, they both lowered arms and went home.

Wars cannot be fuelled by greet or power hungry...as they often were in the past. The citizens of a country would be emaciated by hunger and poverty, wearing old ragged clothing carrying unsuitable arms, which could not protect them from their opponents. Following all this it is heart rending to think these sheep were sent to the slaughter leaving their families and meagre homes for silly causes. 😢

Uesugi Family

Yonezawa City, much like Yamagata City, is a castle town. Famous for once being host to the Uesugi family, a famous Japanese samurai clan, Yonezawa City is the home to many Uesugi-related sites, buildings, and festivals. There is also a row of old houses and samurai residences along one of the city streets. Yonezawa City is the home to many Uesugi-related sites, buildings, and festivals.

One of the festival, related to the cultural and historical background of the Uesugi family, is known as the Uesugi Matsuri, which is held in mid-spring. During the festival, a mock battle takes place at Kawanaka-jima. Here, a dozen or so mounted warriors and hundreds of armor-clad warriors participate in the traditional rituals of Japan’s Warring State Period that took place during the 16th century.
