The Katsunuma Grape festival is an annual event that showcases the grape oriented produce from the region. You can sample the wines and grape juices from over 25 of the local wineries. The festival also features performances throughout the day, 40 gourmet food stalls and culminates in a spectacular giant burning shrine gate on the mountain side with accompanying fireworks.

For me, most of the fun happened once the sun went down. That's when they lit the torches, the drums came out on stage, and then fireworks! During the day it's walking from winery to winery which is a nice walk but a bit too hot on the day we went.
