This is an event, filled with a Japanese atmosphere, called “jugoya” (night of the full moon). Why not experience the taste of Yugawara Onsen while enjoying the view of the full moon? Please enjoy the party at the footbath facility Doppo no Yu with “jugoya” decorations or at the illuminated Rihuku Shrine in Manyo Park!
