It is a chamber of commerce in Hokkaido Niikappu, a city of "records", "music" and "racehorses".
Niikappu is a town with a population of about 5,000 facing the Pacific Ocean in the central part of Hokkaido.
You can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the vast nature that spreads all over the four seasons.
The Chamber of Commerce Niikappu is working to enliven the Niikappu known as the Record, Thoroughbred Town, and for the development of the town.
In COOL JAPAN VIDEOS, we will introduce the activities of our Niikappu Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the appeal of Niikappu.
First of all, I would like to introduce the popular winter events of Niikappu.
Every December, the Youth Division of the Niikappu Chamber of Commerce and Industry holds the Niikappu Illumination Festa.
Around the roadside station "Thoroughbred Road Shinkaku", 26,000 light bulbs such as an illuminated tunnel and a 5-meter-high Christmas tree are displayed, making it an event that is appreciated by many townspeople as a winter tradition.
Due to Coronavirus pandemic, the event was held by live streaming in 2020 and 2021, but last year in 2022, it was held normally for the first time in three years.
A popular event in spring is the carp streamers swimming gracefully in the Niikappu sky!
Every year before Children's Day on May 5, about 60 carp streamers donated to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are installed along the road of "Children's Garden de Re Mi" in Niikappu.
Bright cute carp streamers handmade by the Women's Division of the Niikappu Chamber of Commerce and Industry with patterns and colors painted by kindergarten children also swim in the Niikappu breeze.
The event venue is full of smiles from children.
In addition, in 2021, the work experience project "Niikappu Mirai Quest" was held, where second-year junior high school students in the Niikappu were taught the content, appeal, and motivation of their work, and they actually experienced work.
We will continue to send out information on Niikappu events, the activities of the Niikappu Chamber of Commerce, and attractive new tourist spots, so thank you!
