湯梨浜町 アロハカーニバル2019

2019.07.09 (Tue)


Yurihama’s Aloha Carnival is back again this year!                                   

Featuring various water sports on Lake Tōgō and Hawaiian-inspired menus such as the Aloha Rice Bowl and all sorts of desserts and sweets available at participating restaurants, the Aloha Carnival is a roughly month-long event held each year celebrating the Aloha spirit in the Hawaii of Japan.

Enjoy the bright and warm summer weather with yoga, running in the lake tuber, trying your hand at SUP (stand-up paddle-boarding), canoeing, and more- and don’t forget to get your commemorative mini-Aloha monument by taking a photo in front of Yurihama’s Aloha Monument (off the lake near Hawai Yu-town and the driving center)!

2019年国際GG大会 報告

2019.06.03 (Mon)


GG大会2The 2019 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open was held May 24-25 at Yurihama’s dedicated ground golf course, Shiokaze no Oka Tomari (Tomari Sea Breeze Hill), with a special welcome reception held on May 23 at the Suimeiso Hotel, featuring a special performance by local hula group Lōkahi Ka Makana.

Over 300 participants from across 15 countries, including South Korea, Taiwan, Mongolia, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Poland, and the United States, gathered at the home of ground golf for this 2-day tournament. Blessed with warm sunny weather, participants completed 4 rounds of ground golf while both deepening friendships with other players and enjoying the beautiful view!

Ground golf is a fun and easy sport suited for fostering friendships between players, regardless of their culture and background, as well as for promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for people of all ages and fitness levels.

We hope you will be able to join us next May for the 2020 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open or for the ground golf competition to be held at Yurihama’s Shiokaze no Oka Tomari as part of the 2020 Kansai World Masters Games!

Don’t worry if you have never played before- with its straightforward rules, even beginners have a good chance of turning the tables with a hole-in-one!
