Said to have originated in the Edo period, the Gion festival of Suga Shrine is a large celebration which merged with a commercial festival in 1970, by the people of Numata City. The festival consists of Suga Shrine and Haruna Shrine's legendary mikoshi (portable shrines) carried and displayed throughout town; parade of mando floats and tengu palanquins which are only carried by women; a 1000-person dance; as well as various Shinto rituals and events. The entire city comes alive with festivities.

          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.
