(Aug 1 & 2) Toyooka Yanagi Matsuri (Willow Festival)

On August 1st and 2nd, come to Downtown Toyooka for the summer festival, Yanagi Matsuri (Willow Festival). This is one of the three largest festivals in the region and has been a tradition since 1935, celebrating the area’s production of wicker baskets made from willow (yanagi), which was the start of Toyooka’s biggest industry. On the evening of August 1st, local companies, groups, and schools dress up in festival clothing, and dance up and down Daikai street. On the evening of August 2nd, festival booths are set up towards Caban street, and fireworks can be viewed from 8 pm to 9 pm near the Maruyama river. To access Yanagi Matsuri from Kinosaki Onsen, simply travel 10 to 15 minutes by train to JR Toyooka Station. Exit through the east side of the station and head towards the festivities along Daikai street. For more information about Downtown Toyooka, please see our Downtown Toyooka page.
