Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival

15th January 2018

The Dosojin Matsuri, or Fire Festival, is, for Nozawa Onsen residents, the defining event of the year. It’s a three day progression of events that culminates in the burning of a three-storey high shrine built for the occasion. One of the most famous fire festivals in Japan, it’s an extraordinary spectacle and attracts many visitors. Book your accommodation a year in advance.
