The 100 caves of Yoshimi
will have a festival this coming Saitama Prefecture Day, November 14th. The unusual attraction in Yoshimi will be free in
for the occasion. Usually it costs 300 yen per adult and children over 12 years old, and 200 yen for primary school aged children.
The caves are open from 8.30 am, but the festival will start around 10 am. Different mascots from surrounding cities and towns will visit from 11.30 am. Last year they had the Gyoda Samurai Acting theater performing and a mini “Enoden” train. They had story telling from 10.30 am to 11.30 am. And a stamp rall for the first 600 visitors. The detailed information for this year is not yet available, except that they will have Tree Climbing
for a nominal fee. And they will have local produce for sale. A musical performance from Yoshimi Junior High school’s band has also been confirmed. And they have a pet corner on the day too.
