Yuwaku Bon-Bori Festival

Free

A unique festival straight from the world of popular series Hanasaku Iroha, the following for this fiery event grows every year. The town of Yuwaku was used as a model for the town of Yunosagi Onsen and plenty of spots are identical, with fans coming througout the year in a form of pilgrimage. The festival is the big draw however, having started in 2011 – along with the series – and growing year upon year. The lanterns are lit from July to October and visitors can leave nozomifuda (wishing plaques) ready to be burned on the night.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
