This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video".
Today, I would like to introduce "Hitoshi Matsubuchi's post "Yokote kamakura" in Yokote City, Akita Prefecture".

The beautiful pillow and the scenery of the snow sparkling are fantastic.

The Yokote Snow Festival (Yokote no Yuki Matsuri) held in Yokote City, Akita Prefecture in the Tohoku region is held every February as a small New Year event dedicated to the god of water.

One of the most popular events in the festival is the Yokote Kamakura. About 100 kamakura with a height of about 3 meters will be made throughout the city.
In addition to large kamakura made by craftsmen, there are also mini kamakura made by local elementary school students.
Also, in the kamakura, children serve amazake and mochi.
It is a traditional festival full of snow country atmosphere that is said to have a history of more than 450 years.

In 2023, it is scheduled to be held on February 15 and 16.
In order to hold some of the festivals with a reduced number of contents, please check the official website for details.

Around Yokote City, there are plenty of hot spring inns such as "Akimiya Hot Spring Village".
In conjunction with the festival, why not plan a trip where you can enjoy the nature and taste of Akita Prefecture?

It is "Yokote kamakura" in Yokote City, Akita Prefecture. "Kamakura" is a small New Year's event dedicated to the god of water, and children among the kamakura shout "Enter! They talk to tourists and treat them with mochi and amazake.
This photo is from the "Kamakura" photo session venue, but the best position was super full and I regretted being late, but if I dared to take it from a position where no one was looking, I was able to take a really nice photo and I was very satisfied with the "Kamakura" photo.

Introducing the photos posted on "Minna no Post"! This is a pickup post on the inbound tourism information SNS "COOL JAPAN VIDEOS". Today, I would like to introduce "NOY's post "Cape Earth, Muroran City, Hokkaido". It captures the vastness of the sea and sky. Cape Chikyu Misaki in Muroran City, Hokkaido, in the Hokkaido region, is known as a scenic spot where you can overlook the Pacific Ocean with precipitous cliffs about 100 meters high that stretch for about 14 kilometers. It won first place in the "100 Natural Selections of Hokkaido" and "100 New Japan Sightseeing Spots", and is crowded with many people to see the first sunrise on the first day of New Year's Day. The name "Cape Chikyu" is derived from the Ainu word "chikepu", which means cliff. The pronunciation changed and it became called "Chikyu Misaki". In addition, the chalk octagonal Cape Chikyu Lighthouse built on a cliff is a symbolic lighthouse of Cape Chikyu, which has been selected as one of the "Top 50 Lighthouses in Japan". Normally, it is not possible to visit, but it is open to the public on "Marine Day" from 1993 (Heisei 5). The view from Cape Earth Observatory and Tokkarisho is also recommended. In addition, it is a tourist spot full of charm such as walking routes, shops where you can enjoy Showa gourmet, and cruising. There are many hot spring inns with superb views nearby, so why not heal the fatigue of your trip with a large public bath or open-air bath? ◆Cape Earth◆ 【Access】 ・Public Transportation 10 minutes by JR Mokoi Station→ Donan Bus bound for Cape Chichichi Danchi, get off at the last stop, and walk about 20 minutes. ・Car From Muroran IC in Hokkaido Province via National Route 37, 14 km, about 33 minutes 【Parking】48 cars / Free

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 Mr. Tackle's post "Mt. Fuji from the campsite exclusively at the foot". It is a powerful photo that you can feel even the surface of Mt. Fuji. "Fumoto Soura" is located at the foot of Fujinomiya City, Shizuoka Prefecture in the Tokai region, and is a campsite where you can overlook Mt. Fuji. The reason for its popularity is the free site where you can drive right next to the tent in the vast grounds. Even if you do not have a tent, you can rest assured that there are accommodations such as cottages. Recently, it has become a hot topic as a sacred place for the popular anime "Yuru Can△". The campsite is only equipped with shower facilities, so if you want to take a bath, we recommend using the nearby hot spring facilities. ・Asagiri Onsen Kaze no Yu It is the closest to the campsite and you can also enjoy vanadium hot springs and meals. You can also use the bedrock bath free of charge. ・Tenmu no Yu It is a popular hot bath facility for returning from climbing Mt. Fuji and camping guests. The admission fee is as low as 400 yen for adults, and you can enjoy the medicated bath, cypress bath, and low-temperature sauna. Use of the campsite exclusively at the foot is by appointment only. You need to make a reservation on a specific date from the reservation form on the official website. It seems that it is difficult to make a reservation on consecutive holidays, but it seems that it is relatively easy to make a reservation on weekdays. ◆Exclusive campsite◆ 【Address】〒418-0109 Shizuoka Prefecture Fujinomiya City Roku 156 【Access】 ・Car Shin-Tomei Expressway Get off at Shin-Fuji IC and get off for about 35 minutes. ・Train Get off at JR Shin-Fuji Station, take the bus bound for Fuji 5th Station, get off at Asagiri Green Park stop, and walk 20 minutes
