“Kanagawa West / Japanese Traditional Culture” Festival Special (Yugawara)
About the Yugawara Onsen Yukake Festival
-What kind of festival is the "Yukake Festival"?
Yugawara Onsen is located vertically along the Chitose River flowing through the border between Kanagawa Prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture, and along the upstream Fujiki River. From about 2km along the road, the spectators will be pouring hot water from Yugawara Onsen. There are 1000 barrels (about 60 tons) of hot water, so it is a participatory festival where you can enjoy hot water rather than watching it. In particular, at the Yugawara Tourist Hall Plaza and Izumi Park, which are the main venues, there are shrines walking around the venue, so hot water flies over.
-What did it start with?
It is said that during the Edo period, hot springs in this area were highly effective, and hot springs were packed in barrels and dedicated to the Daimyo family and the mansion. It begins with a ritual to pour hot water and pray for safety on the way at that time, and this is the 34th time. Now, I started to go to the shrine with gratitude for hot water.
-Who is carrying the shrine?
This year, there will be four shrines, three of the bearers will be from local shrine associations, and one will be attended by the “Yukake Festival Experience Tour” organized by the association. Although it is limited to women, we are still looking for participants for trial tours, so please contact us if you are interested (first 10 arrivals)(0 people, all participants will receive an original half-price gift, 3000 yen participation fee).
About Yugawara Onsen

Yugawara Onsen, which is famous as a hot spring for skin that Kaji found. A festival where you can fully enjoy the hot spring water
-What should I do to enjoy the hot water festival more?
Both the bearer and the audience can enjoy both the hot water festival. I want you to get wet and enjoy yourself. On the day of the event, the Mihashi Festival will be held at the Yugawara Tourist Hall square in front of Yugawara Onsen. There are food stalls in the square, and there is a foot bath facility called “Doppo-no-yu” during the day.

-Are there any other events you can enjoy in Yugawara?
From June 1st to 11th, there will be a “Hotaru no Utari” where you can enjoy the native Genji fireflies at Manyo Park, and a “Hanabuchi exhibition” where the flower pots will be lined up at the Yugawara Tourist Hall. Fireflies will be affected by the temperature and temperature of the river, but you will be able to enjoy the light of the fireflies that fly naturally and relaxedly.
ー ー Please tell us about the spots and spots that have recently attracted attention in Yugawara
Yugawara seems to be particularly popular now for bakery and ramen shops. I have heard that there are stores that limit the number of people who can enter the store and stores that can wait for hours before entering the store. Yugawara has long been said to be a place where sacred energy is working, and the “triple power spot tour” that goes to the three places of Gosho Shrine, Joganji, and Makuhari has attracted attention, especially among young women. The If you visit these three places and upload images to SNS, you will also receive prayer goods that will give you the power of sacred wood.
-Finally, please tell us your favorite point about Kunogi's Yugawara
Mr. Kunoki, Director, Planning Division, Yugawara Onsen Tourism Association
The climate is warm, full of nature, and the people of the city are calm and relaxing. It is a place that is easy to access and not too far from the city center. Natsume Soseki and famous writers have visited Yugawara for recreation since a long time ago, but recently there seems to be an increase in the number of young artists. I would like everyone to come to Yugawara.
From Maggal Editorial Department Manyo Park with footbaths opens right next to Yugawara Tourist Hall Square, the main venue for the festival. There is also a tea room in the park where you can enjoy matcha tea while listening to the river buzz and the birds singing. Both the hot water festival and the firefly banquet are night time events, so after enjoying it, I wanted to stay at Yugawara Onsen.
