KENSHIN GACKT returns to Joetsu: photos and videos

Last weekend a crowd of 200.000+ flocked to Joetsu in Niigata to celebrate the 88th annual Kenshin Festival, where GACKT once again took on his iconic guise of the famous Warring States Era warlord Uesugi Kenshin.

Astride a white horse that has mastered the art of photobombing, GACKT/Oyakatasama regally led a procession of 400 volunteers on the departure to the front and the ensuing battle with rival warlord Takeda Shingen.
