There is only daytime parade on Oct 10, so it is better to be there on Oct 9 when there are both daytime and nighttime parades. At least there was what happened when we went there 3 years ago. If I remember correctly, the daytime parade was from 13.00 to 15.00 and the nighttime parade was from 18.00 to 21.00. Having seen both parades on Oct 9, we didn’t go for it on Oct 10.

Here you can find the breakdown of the festival schedule but in Japanese only.

I hope you have already secured your accommodation as the festival is highly popular and hotels get booked out months in advance.
