Yunishigawa Onsen Kamakura Festival 2020 features the winter tradition of northern Japan, “Kamakura” (snow huts). Yunishigawa receives a fair amount of snow in the winter, attracting visitors with river lined outdoor baths surrounded by snow. A nearby riverside site features lots of mini snow houses and is illuminated everyday except Wednesdays and Thursdays. Various outdoor activities, such as a snow slide and snow shoeing, can be enjoyed at other sites.
