Summer Festa Minoo Park - Festival of fire, water and light

Minoo’s traditional summer event, “Summer Festa Minoo Park - a festival of fire, water and light,” is scheduled. 
The surface of the river along waterfall road and the Minoo Fall will be lighted up during the festival. On Saturday, July 22nd, “Minoo Candle Road 2017” will be held, where candles will fantastically light up the forest at night between Minoo Station and the Minoo Fall. 

Minoo Park, the “cool” spot by the city, is a great place to take a cooling-down walk at night with your partner, family or friends 

・Lighting up will be automatically cancelled if a storm warning is in effect or the area is assigned as earth-flow disaster caution zone, when the park should be closed.
