The 100 caves of Yoshimi will have a festival this coming Saitama Prefecture Day, November 14th. And every year on the same date in celebration of the prefecture’s day. 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.
In 2017 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. They usually have at the very least j market and music performances.
