The Showa era, which spanned from 1926 to 1989, holds a special place in the hearts of many people in Japan and beyond. It evokes a profound sense of nostalgia, capturing a unique period of history that witnessed remarkable transformations in society, culture, and technology. A special event taking place at Tamagawa Onsen this summer brings that nostalgic retro feeling back for three days, with a range of activities for the whole family to enjoy.

The Showa Fair will include a variety of fun carnival games to take part in (participation fees range from 100 yen to 300 yen), handheld fireworks displays, market stalls, and more.

There is no admission fee to enjoy the Showa-esque atmosphere, but bring yen if you plan on making a purchase.

Getting there

Tamagawa Onsen can be accessed in around 7 minutes by taxi from Myōkaku Station, which is served by the JR Hachiko Line.
