The Ohira Hydrangea Festival was canceled this year in 2020! [Notice] “Overview of Hydrangea Ohira 1” “Overview of Hydrangea Ohira 2” “Introduction of Ohira Hydrangea Course”
The event was canceled in 2020 to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infection.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we kindly ask for your understanding.
The flower festival is canceled, but you can see the flowers and see the path to Ohira Shrine, so it’s okay!
At Ohirayama Prefectural Natural Park in Tochigi Prefecture, [Ohirasan Tochigi Hydrangea Festival] is held from late June to early July every year.
I will introduce the ” Ohirasan exploration course guide map ” here. When you look at this, Hydrangea slope is just a part of the upper right. There are only this course, but it will be difficult to walk…The upper one breathes out…Rokukakudo, Zuijinmon, Shingendaira Observatory, Hydrangea Hill, Ohira Shrine , You can see on this map. The place where the teahouses are lined up is the place with the observation deck of Shingendaira. A place to dango, fried eggs and eat. “It’s a place where you can enjoy the excellent egg roast, yakitori, and Odaira dumplings while looking out over the Kanto plains.” The reason for this special product is that, as the word “Keimei” has the meaning of dawn, the chickens are said to call the dawn. I was disliked by saying, “We invite ominous news such as fires and disasters.” ・・From the explanation of “ Momiji-an ” In addition, “ Izumiya ”, “Kameya”, “ Yamada Family ”, “Hinodeya”, etc. There are about 10 shops near the summit. Also, there are some stores that will become ordinary stores and behave like Chitake soba…
The chickens that squeal at night are dedicated to Taiheizan Shrine, eat and breed Omiara rice “Osago” that was offered at the shrine, and the eggs and yakitori are the dishes that entertain worshipers using the chickens. is.
Also, the dango used part of the votive rice and was said to have been acted upon by worshipers as well, and later became “Tahei Dango.”
In general, drive up to the entrance to Hydrangea Slope and park your car there. And from there is the climb of the stone stairs. At first it is gentle, but as you get closer to the shrine, the stairs become more severe. There are about 1000 steps. If you climb this stairway, the road will appear in about two-thirds. That is the location in the photo below. You can take a rest, but once you pass this Zuijinmon, a steep staircase will appear again. Finally, I finally arrived at Taiheizan Shrine. This is the most basic course.
