Yunishigawa is well-known as a hot spring town in a remote valley in the mountains. The town is also famous for being the place that the samurai Taira fled to after being defeated in battle by Minamoto in the 12th century. This festival was held for the first time more than 20 years ago and has been designated by the Japanese government as one of the most beautiful night views in Japan.
- Day 1 - Head for the snow paradise
Tucked deep in the mountains, Yunishikawa is famous for the deep snow which blankets it in winter. You can enjoy the landscape here, so white it would be impossible to imagine from looking at Tokyo. You can admire the snowy landscape, and when dinner is done we'll hold an igloo festival. Along the river bank are hundreds of igloos, which you'll be able to look out over. In the small village where we'll stay, little snowmen are lit up by lanterns. At the ryokan you can relax in a private onsen, relaxing completely while looking out over the river and snow.
- Day 2 - Nikkō Toshō-gū Shrine World Heritage Site
After leaving Yunishigawa, take the chance to visit the Nikkō Toshō-gū Shrine World Heritage Site. It is the resting place of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, who ruled Japan over 400 years ago. Not far from the shrine is one of Japan's three most famous waterfalls, Kegon Falls. The water cascades down from a height of 97 meters, and it is well worth a visit before making your way back to Tokyo.
