A snowy wonderland appears each winter in this quiet onsen town as hundreds of small snow-houses are built. Illuminated in the evenings, the kamakura are a beautiful sight, and a barbecue inside one can even be arranged. During the day you can explore the village, try sledding and relax in the hot springs dotted around the town. The main site will be Heike-no-sato which is open from 9am to 9pm, while the mini-kamakura sites on the banks of the Sawaguchi River will be illuminated from 5.30pm – 9pm (except Wednesdays and Thursdays).
Entry for a full day 510 yen (adults) and 250 yen (children) while evening entry is 300 yen.
