Snow at its Best: Yunishigawa Kamakura Festival
Toshogu Shrine and Lake Chuzenji are two of the most well-known attractions in Nikko. But do you know that Yunishigawa is also an attraction with historical significance? You don’t have to travel all the way to the Tohoku region to experience Japan’s unique snow house culture. Yunishigawa Kama-kura Festival, or Yunishigawa Snow House Festival, takes place from January to early March every year and around 800 snow houses are lit up at night, creating a magnificent sight to enjoy. If you're in Tokyo, just hop on the Tobu Railway’s limited express Revaty and you’ll be in this winter won-derland in no time.
