I ❤ Yurihama アロハ・カーニバル

2017.06.14 (Wed)



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!
