Minowa-no-Sato no Kitsune no Yomeiriみのわの里のきつねの嫁入り


A unique festival created by Misato area residents based on a local legend relating to a fox. Up until around 1960, wedding ceremonies and processions in the area were conducted with the participants dressed in traditional garb modeled after foxes, traditionally viewed as near godlike creatures in Japan. The Kitsune no Yomeiri, or Fox Wedding, helps to keep alive the area's conventions, customs, and traditional clothing. The main event is a must-see-a magnificent bridal parade consisting of performers wearing kimono and fox-styled makeup followed by a creative outdoor show. Local specialty products are also sold at the festival grounds, and each year many spectators and tourists come to enjoy the spectacle.

          Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
