Sanno Festival (14-15Apr) 2009

by Maxiediva Online Now Feb 24, 2009 at 7:14 AM

Hi fellow VTs,
I'm heading to Takayama for the Sanno Festival 2009.

1. Which of the 2 days are more festive and when do the puppets make their appearance? Will it be daytime on the 1st day or night-time? Is there anything spectacular on the 14th night and 15th? I want to enjoy the whole experience but I can't get a room on the 14Apr (unless someone here lives in Takayama and don't mind lending a sofa / futon / pillow for the night :-))

2. Is the train station safe to spend the night (as a last resort)? else I have to catch the last train out to Osaka at 8pm.

3. Anyone else making their way to the festival?

Thanks all.
