Koshi Fire Festival


Koshi Fire Festival is a festival where you can enjoy the traditional “Sai no kami”( The Local Gods who protect the city), which prays for disease freeness and five-grain richness by assembling straw in a conical shape and burning them.

The straw cover in a conical shape for burning in this festival is 25m high. When ignited, the height of the fire pillar is as high as 50m. A fire pole that soars in a pure white snowfield and fireworks in the snow that colors are dynamic things to enjoy here alone.

The first 50 people can launch a flying sky lantern. In the time to get dark, there will also be events such as Japanese drum performance, snow-chuting bullfighting tournaments.

From those who want to see a romantic scene, it is a fire festival that can be enjoyed with peace of mind that can be recommended to families.
