There are 1000 barrels (about 60 tons) of hot water, so it is a participatory festival where you can spend more time watching and enjoying hot water. In particular, in the open space in front of the Yugawara Tourist Center, which will be the main venue, and the Izumi Park, the hot spring flew in and out as the Shinto shrine walks through the venue.

In addition, Yugawara is said to be a place where sacred energy has been working for a long time, and the "Triple Power Spot Tour" for the three places of Gosho Shrine, Joganji Temple and Makuyama attracts attention mainly from young women. You You can also visit these three locations and upload the image to SNS as a gift of prayer that you can wear the power of the sacred tree.

Lastly, please tell me the point you like Yugawara Kunogi

Yugawara Onsen Tourism Association Planning Division Manager Kunogi

The climate is mild and full of nature, and the people of the city are calm and relaxed. It is an easy-to-reach place not far from downtown, and it is easy to live. Soseki Natsume and famous writers have visited Yugawara for a long time, but it seems that young artists are also increasing recently. I would like everyone to come to Yugawara.

From Magkal Editorial Club Just next to the Yugawara Tourist Center square, which is the main venue of the festival, is the Manyo Park with footbath. There is also a tea room in the garden, and you can enjoy green tea while listening to the serenity of the river and the song of the birds. It was a night time event because it was an event during the night time, so I wanted to enjoy relaxing at Yugawara Onsen.
