YurukyaraGrandPrix6Profile:

Yuririn is the town’s celestial maiden mascot character that was designed in 2012 incorporating elements of the towns specialty products, a local legend of a celestial maiden, as well as the town’s ties to Hawaii County (Hawaii, USA) and its own Hawai district.

Her hair is the bright green color of the region’s famous 20th Century Pears, and the flowers adorning her hair are the beautiful pear blossoms that bloom each spring.

She wears a light blue shawl representing heavenly robes (hagoromo) and a colorful lei made of the evening glory flowers that appear in the Legend of the Celestial Maiden.

Yurihama is located along the coast off the Sea of Japan, and her flowing dress symbolizes the rolling waves of the sea.

The lei and her dress are also meant to give her a Hawaiian feel to represent Yurihama’s sister-city relationship with Hawaii County and past promotional campaigns calling the town the “Hawaii of Japan” due to its Hawai district (formerly the town of Hawai).

I ❤ Yurihama アロハ・カーニバル

2017.06.14 (Wed)

AlohaCarnival01

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 Monument ・ アロハ・モニュメント

2016.06.16 (Thu)

Aloha Monument

Aloha Monument Photo

  In June of 2014, Yurihama unveiled the Aloha Monument as it kicked off its first Aloha Carnival. The monument was constructed to commemorate both the 10th anniversary of the creation of the town through merging the former towns of Hawai, Tomari, and Tōgō, and to celebrate the ongoing friendship and exchange between Yurihama and Hawaii.

  The Aloha Monument is located in Yurihama’s Tōgō Hawai Seaside Park (near the Driving License Center and across the way from Hawai Yu~Town), against a breathtaking backdrop of the beauty of Lake Tōgō and the surrounding natural greenery. Attempting to capture just a bit of the aloha spirit, the monument is engraved with 2 hands making Hawaii’s shaka sign as well as a heart, making it a fun photo op for visitors to the park (especially couples!).

If you are ever in the area, stop on by and take your own photo posing in front of the Aloha Monument!☆

As part of this year’s Aloha Carnival (happening all throughout Yurihama July 1st through August 21st ), anyone can take their photo in front of the Aloha Monument to win a special prize!!
