Minakada Festival is held to celebrate the anniversaries of local hot-springs.
This year marks the 400th year anniversary of Yagen-onsen.The festival is run by a local group who supports vitalization of the town.People usually think of attracting people in to revitalize the town.But it’s important to bring light back into the lives of the locals. So they wanted to create a day in which the local people could have a blast. And that is how the Minakada Festival has started.
