AlohaCarnival02

The Tourism Division of the Yurihama Chamber of Commerce and Industry is working with the Tourism Association and Ryokan Union to put on this year’s Aloha Carnival. Featuring an array of water sports, Hawaii-inspired menus, and special events, it’s the perfect way to include a bit of fun, sun, and aloha into your summer!

Enjoy the sunshine while canoeing on the lake, trying to keep your balance in the Lake Tuber, stretching your body with yoga on the terrace, or gliding over the water on a stand up paddle board, and then refuel with one of the special menus available at participating locations, including the Aloha Rice Bowl (based off of loco moco), Aloha Burger, and more!

Aloha Carnival: Stand-up Paddle Boarding! ・ SUP体験

2015.07.08 (Wed)

SUP

Stand-up paddle boarding is a popular water sport similar to traditional paddle boarding; however, rather than kneeling and using your hands to paddle, you stand-up on the board and use paddles to glide across the surface of the water. You get a good workout while relaxing and getting a unique and beautiful view of the ocean SUPfloor below you (as well as the horizon stretching off into the distance).

Come wearing your swimsuit- or even just clothes that you don’t mind getting wet. You will be given a life-jacket to wear and the staff will be there to help instruct you and help as
needed.

You don’t need to be able to swim or speak Japanese to participate, so come and enjoy stand-up paddle boarding with us!

 Row of Palms ・ トウジュロの並木

2015.06.05 (Fri)

トウジュロの並木

The former town of Hawai promoted itself as a tourist destination, coining the phrase “the Hawaii of Japan.” Over 500 island palms currently line the road that leads to Hawai’s hot spring resort, giving a tropical feel to the area. Compared to the tall evergreen palm trees, these palm trees are characterized by shorts stalks and small unbending leaves. In the springtime, bunches of yellow flowers adorn the tops of these palm trees.

旧羽合町が「日本のハワイ」をキーワードに観光の町をPRしてきました。現在、はわい温泉に通じる県道沿いには、ヤシ科のトウジュロが500本以上植えられ、シュロ並木の道路として、南国ムードを盛り上げています。葉柄は長く、雌雄異株の常緑高木で、シュロに比べて葉柄が短く、葉もやや小さく裂片が折れ曲がらないのが特徴です。春に花穂が密な黄色い花をつけます。
