Aomori in Winter – Hirosaki City Sightseeing – A Journey With Nebuta, Tsugaru Shamisen, and Gourmet Food!Read Later
You can reach Shin-Aomori Station from Tokyo Station in about 3 hours by taking the “Hayabusa” Tohoku Shinkansen. Switch to the standard train line for about 40 minutes, and you will reach Aomori Prefecture’s Hirosaki. Here I will report on that area in the wintertime.
Every year on January 15th, people make a pilgrimage to three temples in Hida-Furukawa: Enko-ji, Shinshu-ji, and Honkou-ji.The three temples feature large Japanese candles, and the main streets of town are lined with giant 2-meter-tall snow candles.
Ice Fall Festival in Sounkyo, HokkaidoRead Later
The Ice Fall Festival is one of Hokkaido’s 3 largest snow festivals that started in 1976. This festival is hosted on the big river bank (about 10,000㎡) of the Ishikari river.At the festival you will see a variety of interesting ice sculptures such as an ice look out, an ice castle, ice tunnels, and an ice slide.
I highly recommend this facility to those interested in traditional Japanese houses! Here I will be introducing Kanagawa Prefecture’s Kamakura Guesthouse, “a small inn with a sunken hearth.”
