I think about 70% of foreign tourists
Jigokudani Monkey Park is such a popular spot.
It is a good photo spot no matter how many times you go, so it is a highly recommended place.
Especially when a baby monkey comes close, I just want to take a picture.

Introducing photos post "Everyone's post"! Inbound tourist information social media "COOL JAPAN VIDEOS" pickup post. Today, I would like to introduce Lily0321's post "Cleaning up the dondo-yaki fire held in a mountain village in Niigata Prefecture". It's a quaint piece that captures unique festival and traditional culture. In Tokamachi City, Niigata Prefecture, the strange festival "Muko Throwing" and "Sumi-zuki" held in January every year are small New Year's events that have been handed down since the Edo period. Muko-tossing wishes for the blessing of marriage and the bond of husband and wife, and throws the son-in-law who got married the previous year off a 5-meter-high cliff. In addition, Sumi-gashi is an event in which charcoal and snow are mixed with dondoyaki (Shinto ritual, the god of sai) and applied to each other's faces, wishing for a disease-free life and prosperity of the family business. The festival is held at Matsunoyama Onsen, one of the heaviest snowfall areas in Japan. It is a historical hot spring that has a theory that it is a hidden hot spring of the Echigo guardian Uesugi family. Due to the strong salt quality of the spring, it does not cool down even in winter, and it is also called "Japan's three major medicinal hot springs". The hot spring town is full of sightseeing spots such as open-air baths, day-trip hot springs, foot baths, and gourmet food. At the "Earth Furnace" where the kominka was relocated, you can experience grilling the hearth and making hot spring pork. ◆Matsunoyama Onsen◆ 【Access】 About 25 minutes by bus from Matsudai Station on the Hokuhoku Line About 60 minutes by car from the Kanetsu Expressway "Shiozawa-Ishiuchi IC" Please check the official website for details.

Cleaning up a dondo-yaki fire in a mountain village in Niigata Prefecture. The "Suminuri Festival" was also held, so my face is black with charcoal. Even though it was snowing, the old-fashioned appearance was impressive.

Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce Menma's post "Kanazawa Station's specialty "Komon". The unique design of the gate is a powerful photo. Kanazawa Station, located in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture in the Koshinetsu region, is a representative station of Kanazawa City, which was selected as one of the "14 most beautiful stations in the world" by an American travel magazine. The Tsuzumimon and Hospitality Dome in front of the station were completed in March 2005 as part of the city's redevelopment. The 13.7-meter-high drum gate is inspired by the drums of Noh, a traditional performing art of Kanazawa. The concept of the Hospitality Dome is "the spirit of hospitality that offers an umbrella to people who get off the station" in Kanazawa, where there is a lot of rain and snow. Both were designed by architect Ryuzo Shirae. Illuminated from sunset to 0:00, Drum Gate is also a popular photo spot. At the nearby shopping mall, you can buy souvenirs and traditional crafts, and you can also enjoy ramen, which is also a Kanazawa gourmet. For accommodation, we recommend hotels near the east exit of Kanazawa Station, and have good access to Kenrokuen Garden, which is famous for its Japan garden. ◆Kanazawa Station◆ 【Address】〒920-8580 Ishikawa Prefecture, Kanazawa-shi, Kinoshinbocho 1-1 【Access】 railway Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka: about 2 hours and 30 minutes
