Main Event

Ryusendo Cave Festival

Known in the old days as the Shizugawa Shrine Festival, today’s Ryusendo Cave Festival celebrates gratitude for the crystal-clear water springing out of the Cave, while offering prayers for the continuing protection of these water resources – and conveying a spirit of appreciation for the forest that nurtures this gift of water.

The events include a safety prayer ceremony to express gratitude for the purity of Ryusendo Cave’s water, performances of the town’s distinctive folk entertainment, and Mochi-maki (tossing rice-cakes together with noveties among guests).
Being held in the Golden Week, the festival becomes very crowded with throngs of tourists, as well as locals.

Ryusendo Cave Summer Festival

The summer festival’s biggest attraction is its grill which you can enjoy Iwaizumi’s famous specialty – Iwaizumi Tankaku-gyu (Iwaizumi shorthorn beef). The grill is so popular that visitors begin queuing up even before it opens!

Other programs include a special guided tour by a researcher(s) of the Speleology Research Institute, folkloric performances and also live music.
All the while, Iwaizumi Town’s specialties will be sold by the town’s traders.
In recent years, there have been marketing programs such as social networking service (SNS) incentive promotions to encourage visitor referrals to Ryusendo.
