Sagamatsuri: Saga is Great!!!!!!

This summer, a special event based on TV anime series “Osomatsu-san” will be held in Saga Prefecture, Japan.

The event, titled “Sagamatsuri: Saga is Great!!!!!!” in Japanese, is part of Sagaprize!, a publicity initiative for Saga Prefecture. “Osomatsu-san” has several ties with the prefecture; in addition to being set in the Saga city of Karatsu, the Japanese character for “matsu” appears in the names of many Saga locations and famous products.

A stamp collecting contest will be held in Karatsu on July 25th through August 28th. Two sets of images of the anime series’ six Matsuno brothers will be hidden throughout the city, with players who complete both sets receiving a special “Karatsu Master” commemorative certificate.

During the event, Karatsu will also feature a bus illustrated with “Osomatsu-san” artwork and a gift shop selling limited edition merchandise. Local restaurants will also be offering “Osomatsu-san” menus, and a variety of other promotions will be held in the downtown Karatsu area. The event will kick off on July 25th with a special appearance from the Matsuno sextuplets in the form of full-body mascot costumes.

Additional details will be available at the event’s official site.
