Vice-Commander Toshizo Hijikata, and Genzaburo Inoue, the leader of the Sixth Division of the Shinsengumi, were from Hino City. Many references that trace the deep ties between the troop and the people of Hino are carefully preserved in Hino City, such as the Shinsengumi Furusato Historical Museum, and the descendants of Toshizo Hijikata, Genzaburo Inoue and Hikogoro Sato operate information centers. Fans from across Japan and overseas visit these places.

Shinsengumi Festival

This is Hino City’s biggest festival, conducted in early May every year to commemorate the anniversary of Toshizo Hijikata’s death. A troop parade by Shinsengumi fans from across Japan is a must-see.
