Yoshida Fire Festival

Yoshida Fire Festival consists of two parts: “Chinka Sai (Extinguishment Festival)” and “Susukino Matsuri (Japanese Pampas Grass Festival)”. Chinka Sai is based on an old story that tells how Gosaijin (enshrined god) gave birth safely in a big fire. Nowadays, the festival’s major purpose is to take Mt. Fuji’s volcanic eruptions under control. The highlight of this festival is a scene where Kinu Gaki (huge enclosure of white cloth that local people hold by its corners) is being devoted solemnly among Ujiko Sukeisya (people who live in an area which they believe the god protects).

A wonderful uplifting feeling fills the venue while Mikoshi (portable shrine) floats through the streets. In the evening, as soon as Mikoshi arrives at Otabi-sho (its resting place for the night), Seko (people who carry Mikoshi) and Ujiko start installing big torches. Those torches are over three meters tall and look very impressive. Then, the mayor of Fujiyoshida city and the representatives of the festival start setting a fire on big torches one after another.

Details and Access

The festival takes place on August 26th and 27th every year. Chinka Sai happens on the 26th .

The highlight of this festival is 20 men who are turning 20 years old (coming of age) and any men who want to cleanse themselves from evils/bad luck, carrying ‘Misogi’ and get into the ocean almost naked in the middle of January. The ocean is freezing cold during the season. The festival was a traditional event for a long time, however, during the war period, the main shrine for the festival burnt down.

Also, they do mochi maki (rice cake throwing) as well as water splashing for entertainment. The festival is free to participate and to view.

Setsubun is a traditional event celebrating the beginning of spring according to the Japanese lunar calendar. It’s a day full of bean-throwing, bean-eating, and efforts to scare evil away to welcome good fortune in the new year. At Fujisan Hongu Sengen Shrine, you can experience a ceremony for Setubun, bean-throwing by Toshiotoko (the men who were born in the year of the same Chinese zodiac as the year), sharing sweet sake (amazake), and celebrate Setsubun all day. At the bean-throwing part, they are throwing sweets and small gifts up in the air along with the beans. Be sure to bring a bag to take all the goodies home!

Mt. Omuro Mountain Burning

It looks like a forest fire, but this is a traditional event that has been going on for 700 years. Locals know Mt. Omuro as sister to Mt. Fuji and from the top of the mountain you will be able to see the big sister. By burning the whole mountain, people exterminate pests letting the new grass and leaves grow on the mountain in spring. Surprisingly, in 30 minutes the whole mountain turns black in ashes. Being able to see the entire mountain burning is something different! I’ve personally seen this when I was little and the heat from the fire kept me warm! Besides, this mountain is Japan’s designated nature treasure as well.

Details and Access

The mountain burning happens on the 2nd Sunday of February every year. There are 300 free parking lots near the mountain lift, but this is a very popular event. Be sure you have extra time for traffic. It is about 12 minutes from Izukogen Station by car and 30 minutes’ drive from Ito station. So, if you are taking public transportation from those stations, get on Tokai Bus towards Shaboten Koen and you will arrive right in front of the lift entrance.

Kawazu Sakura Festival

Japan is famous for its beautiful cherry blossoms. Commonly, the Sakura trees start blooming around the end of March in Japan. But did you know that the type of cherry trees you can see at Kawazu Sakura festival start blooming in February? People started growing these cherry trees in this area when Katumi Iida found a young plant of Kawazu-zakura and planted it there. In 1966, it started blooming, and in 1968, another man – Mituya Katumata started working on planting more Kawazu-zakura around the area. This name, Kawazu-sakura became official in 1974, when the experts found the original tree in this area. During the festival period, you will also enjoy various food stalls and breathtaking illumination at night!

Details and Access

The festival typically goes from early February for about a month. In 2019, the dates will be from 10th of February to 10th of March. I also recommend you stay at the venue until it gets dark, so you can enjoy the illumination, a night walk event that starts at 8 pm, and a cuisine event. The venue is only eight minutes by walk from Kawazu station on JR Izukyuko line.
