Two days to give thanks to the hot springs that help heal people
This festival is originally held according to the tradition of taking a bath to onsen at two o’clock in the morning (ushi no koku) on the midsummer day of the ox to pray for sound health throughout the year. Afterwards the aim of the festival changed into the appreciation to Onsen until now.
In order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been canceled for 2020.
