Today, I would like to introduce "mihyaru" post "At the Snow Festival in Iiyama City, Nagano Prefecture".

The high-quality Amabie snow sculpture is an impressive photo.

The Iyama Snow Festival is a snow festival held in Iiyama City, Nagano Prefecture in mid-February every year.
Huge snow sculptures are lined up in the city, and it is an event that represents winter in Iiyama City, which is crowded with many visitors every year.

Shinanodaira in Iiyama City is one of the heaviest snowfall areas in Japan. The Iyama Snow Festival was started in 1983 with the desire of local youth to revitalize the region by viewing snow, which is a burden on citizens, as a resource.

During the event, various events such as restaurants, snow sculpture contests, and photo contests with the theme of the Iyama Snow Festival will also be held.
In addition, at the same time as the Iyama Snow Festival, "Kamakura no Sato" and "Kamakura Festival" are also held.

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.
