Kojohama Kani-Tarako-Onsen Sandai Festival (crab, cod roe, and hot springs festival)
Each year right after the open season for crab begins, visitors to the festival form long queues to purchase fresh horsehair crabs at limited prices. Some booths sell a wide variety of seafood such as cod roe and sea urchin, while others sell fresh crab soup, yutara donburi and other Kojohama-famous foods. There are fun events such as grabbing rainbow trout, bingo games with amazing prizes and more for the whole family to enjoy. After a great time at the festival, head to Kojohama Hot Springs to soak in the natural flowing hot springs (100 discount tickets gifted).
