This summer festival draws many locals from around the resorts. Restaurant owners and hotel managers come together to help the Kutchan Tourism Association with Hirafu Village's big summer event.

The event is held over at Sun Sports Land and features games and contests, plenty of festival food and live performances throughout the day.

The annual newspaper sword fight is always a blast and often has a pretty cool prize for grabs. Last year, the final prize was a Gentemstick snowboard!

Don't miss out on this summer event!
