Shin-Hotaka Autumn walk: Night Sky Watching (From 20th to 30th Oct.)


This is the event of illumination symbolizing the autumn of Okuhida Onsengo. Natural scenery stained red or yellow is illuminated with light beautifully and fantastically. Besides the main illumination venue, there are also illuminations at two other locations.

Winter illumination


The trees around the public open-air bath "Kojin-no-yu" at Tochio-Onsen area are decorated with about bulbs. The scenery is very fantastic. The light of the illumination is reflected on pure white snow, and it is enclosed by the gentle light around.

Aodaru illumination


Within the mountains of the Fukuji Onsen area stands the “Fukuji Wall” rock face. As water seeps from the rock face it freezes into columns of blue ice, known as Aodaru.
These columns of blue ice are recreated in the hot spring town.
In daytime the columns are a beautiful clear blue, and at night they are lit up to create an even more magical scene.
From early to mid February you can enjoy special events such as the “Ice Path Light-up”, that allows you to walk behind the Aodaru, and demonstrations of the local performing art of the Henbetori lion dance.
