This time, i will introduce the inns that were the stage of Hanasaku Iroha.
[What is Hanasaku Iroha? ]
Hanasaku Iroha’s main character, Ohana Matsumae, was suddenly told that she would run away at night with her boyfriend who made a debt from her mother’s Satsuki.
Ohana came to Kissuisō in Yunosaki Onsen, Ishikawa Prefecture, relying on the address given from Satsuki.
Kissuisō was the mother of Satsuki and the grandmother of Ohana, Sui Shijima.
Ohana began to work at the inn as a live-in apprentice at the direction of her grandmother.
Yuwaku Onsen is a hot spring located in Yuwakucho, Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture.
It is also a hot spring that represents Kanazawa Onsenkyo.
There are 9 inns, day bathing facilities “Soyu Shirasagi no Yu” and restaurants.
Yunoyu Onsen is also the place where Hanasaku Iroha was set, and Hanasaku Iroha has appeared as “Yunosagi Onsen”.
“Bonbori Festival” is actually held here.
Yuwaku Onsen is a place that became a model for the Yunosagi Onsen that appears in Hanasaku Iroha, and is the sacred place for Hanasaku Iroha.
Since the start of the Hanasaku Iroha broadcast, many anime fans have visited the Holy Land Pilgrimage.
At Yuwaku Onsen, the fictional ritual “Bonbori Festival” held in Hanasaki Iroha was decided to be held in cooperation with the production company P.A.WORKS.
Since then, a bonbori has been set up since July every year, and during the consecutive holidays in October, a festival is held at Yuwaku Inari Shrine.
The bonbori festival route is about 500 meters from the hot spring town entrance to Yuwakuinari Shrine to Lake Gyokusen.
It is said that about 5,000 people gathered when it was held in 2011.
In order to make the bonbori festival a festival that takes root in the region, it was the birthplace of anime, but the service of the inn did not cooperate with anime.
When the schedule was announced every year after the fans received that information, the ryokan in Yuwaku Onsen was filled with reservations.
The bonbori of the bonbori festival will be displayed from July.
Bonbori is hung up to Yuwaku Inari Shrine, and there is a footbath in the middle of the meeting.
So you can enjoy the lit up while enjoying the footbath.
Since the Bonbori Festival is held at Yuwaku Inari Shrine, we go up the stairs to the shrine.
During the bonbori festival, bonbori are prepared on both sides of the stairs.
When you go up the stairs you will see a red torii.
At the Bonbori Festival, you write your wish on the “Nozomi Tag” and make a wish at the main festival of the Bonbori Festival.
There seems to be a fan art tag depicting Ohana in the Nozomi tag, and you can see that Iroha Hanasaku is loved forever.
When you go to the Bonbori Festival, write your wish on the Nozomi Tag and place it on the Nozomi bill.
One of the sacred places of Hanasaku Iroha, “Nishigishi Station” is a model of “Yunozaki Station”.
“Nishigishi Station” is a station on the Nanao Line of the railway, and there is no automatic ticket vending machine.
On April 29th, 2011, an event was held by the railway and P.A.WORKS where the station name for the Nanao area was changed to Yunosagi Station.
When the “Yuwaku Bonbori Festival” is held, the signboards of the station building will be changed to “Yuunosagi Station”.

One of the sacred places of Hanasaku Iroha is the “Onsen Town Entrance”.
There are many fans who come here and feel like they have come to Yuwaku Onsen.
