The Kamakura Festival is held in the Nakao-Kogen Highlands of Shin-Hotaka-Onsen. Each year about 7 snow huts (kamakura) of varying sizes are built around the venue. Each snow hut varies in its own way, with some housing warm hearths or drink bars (so-called “kamakura bars”). During the event period visitors can enjoy various activities on different days, such as participating in rice cake making or seeing the local performing art of the Meoto Jishi (husband & wife lion) dance. Enjoy a fun spectacle under the starlit sky.
