Hello everyone! This is the SMOMO editorial department.
We look forward to your continued support of SMOMO this year 🎍✨
This time, we will introduce "Yu Akari", a winter tradition in Aso and Minamioguni Town!
The SMOMO editorial department has carefully selected the highlights of this year's hot springs and SNS shining spots, which are called "return to origin" on the 10th anniversary!
■ What is Yukari?
The light-up event "Yu Akari", which started on December 12, last year, is a winter tradition in Aso and Minamioguni Town.
As one of the landscape activities, a number of tubular lanterns and spherical temari lanterns made from thinned bamboo illuminate the hot spring town fantastically.It is a wonderful event that creates a beautiful landscape in the winter night sky.
The atmosphere is a little different from the glittering illuminations of the city.It's not flashy, but the gentle lights attract people.
It was mainly in the Kurokawa Onsen area, but since 2018 it has been held throughout the town.You can enjoy the sights that can only be seen there by elaborating the tastes of each region.
