Asama Jinja Shrine
Familiar from olden times as a symbol of containing mountain fires, it also serves as a god of Sake making, marriage, conception and childbirth. Every year on April 15, the regular festival (Omiyuki-san) features robust young male bearers of O-mikoshi (sacred palanquins) clad in colorful kimonos, wading through the streets to create a dazzling and lively atmosphere of festivity. Equipped with restrooms and a parking lot, it is about a 20-minute drive from Isawa Onsen Station.
