This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video".
Today, I would like to introduce "mihyaru" post "Nagano Prefecture Zenkoji's Komainu".

The snow fluttering and the dignity of the Komainu dog that feels the history are impressive.

"Zenkoji Temple" in Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture in the Koshinetsu region is a non-sectarian temple that anyone can visit regardless of the denomination that was founded before the sect split in Japan.
The main hall is designated as a National Treasure as one of the largest wooden buildings in the East Japan. In addition, the bell tower and Niomon gate were registered as national registered tangible cultural properties (buildings).

The "Zenkoji Temple Opening Book" held once every seven years is a famous event as a grand ceremony of Zenkoji Temple.
During the opening period, the Buddhism Flower Festival and various rituals are held. A beautiful paper cut "Mikaisho Special Goshuin" will also be distributed in limited quantities.

The area around Zenkoji Temple is full of sightseeing spots.
There are plenty of soba noodles in front of the Zenkoji gate, and why not stop by the long-established "Kuichi Soba Imamura Soba Main Store" and the reasonably priced "Juwari Soba Daizen".
Local sake, miso, and soy sauce koji that can be purchased at the brewery's directly managed store "Zenkoji Gaien Nishinomon Yoshinoya" are recommended as souvenirs.

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 "Teppy's post "Okuoikojo Station" with a superb view in the hinterland of Shizuoka. The station built as if floating on the lake and the magnificent nature are a spectacular view. Okuōikojo Station (奥大井湖上駅, Okuōikojo-eki) is a station on the Ōigawa Railway Ikawa Line in Kawanehoncho, Haibara-gun, Shizuoka Prefecture, Tokai region, which won the "COOL JAPAN AWARD 2019". It was built on a peninsula-like site that came out on the left bank during the construction of the Nagashima Dam. The scenery that seems to be floating on the lake has become a hot topic on SNS. To get to the viewpoint with a superb view of the station and nature, it is about an 18-minute walk from the parking lot of Okuoikojo Station. It is also recommended to actually enter the station and tour the platform. In addition, the iron bridge "Okuoi Rainbow Bridge" of the Minami Alps Aputo Line (Ikawa Line) that spans both sides of the peninsula where the station is located can be crossed on foot. The Ōigawa Railway is also famous for the popular anime "Thomas the Tank Engine". You can also take the Toby the Tank Engine and the Bertie bus. There are also plans for day tours and a little longer to enjoy with Thomas Land. From December ~ January 2022, Thomas Fair will be held at two locations, "Shin-Kanaya Main Venue" and "Senzu Satellite Venue". It is full of highlights such as driving a mini SL and an exhibition of Thomas' nakama. In addition, a gift plan will be held for 3 days only from December 23 (Fri) ~ 25 (Sun), 2022. Children under elementary school age who ride the Thomas the Tank Engine during the period will receive Christmas presents. Please check the official website for details. ◆Access ◆ Okuoikojo Station 【Train】 Take the Minami Alps Aputo Line (Ikawa Line) to the 10th station from Senzu Station (ride time: about 1 hour 5 minutes) Oigawa Railway 【Train】 Get off at JR Tokaido Line "Kanaya Station", move the platform, and go to the Oigawa Railway platform 【Car】 From Shin-Tomei "Shimada Kanaya IC", take National Route 473 toward Kanaya City (South) for about 10 minutes.

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 Harumi Nozaki's post "Lights of Kurokawa Onsen in Aso". The warm light of the hot spring and the harmony of nature are superb. Kurokawa Onsen is located in Minamioguni-cho, Aso County, Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu region, which received two stars in the 2009 Michelin Green Guide Japan. "Yuakari" is a light-up event held at Kurokawa Onsen in winter. It started in 2012 and celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. The main spot for hot spring lighting is around Marusuzubashi Bridge over the Tanohara River that flows through Kurokawa Onsen. About 300 spherical "Kuri lanterns" are hung, and the fantastic scenery with tube lanterns is also lit, and it goes well with the snow. For viewing the hot spring light, we also recommend the hot spring inn where you can see the hot water. ・Kurokawa Onsen Yamabiko Ryokan You can see the Tanohara River from the corridor of the Yamabiko Ryokan. There are two types of hot springs and are popular as "double beautiful skin hot water". You can also enjoy open-air baths and various private baths. ・Historical inn Located about a 1-minute walk from Marusuzubashi Bridge, this inn has a long history dating back to the mid-Edo period.
