The annual Yuki Hot Spring and Firefly Festival which takes place at the end of June attracts many visitors every year.

There are more than 10 waterfalls big and small in Yuki Town. They are all unique in their own ways so we would love you to see all of them. You will usually finish at a waterfall after each shower climbing course.
