A traditional summer festival featuring samurai on horseback has begun in the Soma region of Fukushima Prefecture.

A procession of people dressed as samurai warriors was held for the first time in 7 years in the Odaka district of Minamisoma City.

Authorities last year lifted evacuation orders for the district that were issued after the 2011 nuclear accident. Spectators included former residents who had evacuated.

One of them said he was overwhelmed, as he used to watch the parade every year. He said he wants his hometown festival to be successful.

The 3-day event runs through Monday.
