Kobe Jazz Street

It is the text from here.

On both festival days the events begin with a marching band, whose music resounds on Kitanozaka 600m in length.

These members meet face-to-face today for the first time.

Enjoy the program you like the best.

Kobe is the city where jazz began in Japan, as it was the nation's first city to host a performance by a professional jazz band. Kobe continues to be a jazz city to this day, dotted with numerous live houses and jazz bars. Kobe Jazz Street is Kobe's signature fall festival. For two days every year in early October, some 150 players from around the world entertain audiences at 10 venues in Kitanocho, including live houses, churches and hotels. Both days begin with a marching-band parade, so visitors can enjoy the excitement from street-side. There's even a popular "festival eve" tradition, in which local hotels present jazz dinner shows.
