■Hirayu-Onsen Enman Festival 


When Takeda Shingen of the Kai Province invaded Hida with his army, he became incapacitated from fatigue and the noxious vapors from Mt. Iodake. Just then there appeared a white monkey that led him to the hot springs. Bathing in the hot springs restored Takeda’s vitality. This is the legend of the Hirayu Onsen hot springs. The Enman festival is held in celebration of this legend, with a white monkey as its mascot.
