Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival

The Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival takes place on 15th January 2019 so this optional excursion is only suitable for bookings that fall over this date.

Nozawa's most famous festival is a must-see cultural experience. Here, fire erupts in a designated area of the village where thousands gather to celebrate and pray for the well being and good fortune of the village, and to ensure a plentiful harvest for the coming year. The Dosojin festival is one of Japan's three most celebrated fire festivals, where torch bearing villagers battle against young men barricaded in a pre-built wooden fort with an aim to burn it down. Space is limited so book early!

Tour includes transport, English-speaking guide, tasting Oyaki steamed buns, traditional Japanese set menu dinner, and insurance
