Held every year since 1997 (Heisei 9) as the CAR AND CUSTOMIZING MOTOR SHOW, it is one of the biggest events in the Kansai and attracts more than 200,000 visitors annually.
“Customize” means “to rebuild a car the way one likes.”
A single automobile is made up of between 20,000 and 30,000 individual parts. And those parts can be roughly divided up into 3 types, parts for the exterior, for the interior, and for the engine and drive train. Making your own car according to your personal preferences by replacing any of those separate parts is what it means to “customize” a car.
“Dress-up” and “Tuning” are words that are often used to mean the same thing as “Customizing.” When we customize the way a car looks to the eye, we call it “Dressing-up.” When we customize the engine’s power and the car’s running performance, we call it “Tuning.” And the replacement parts we use to customize a car we call “custom parts” (or “after parts”).
The OSAKA AUTOMESSE is a motor show based around the theme of customizing. It brings together a huge assortment of custom parts and accessories that will make the car you normally drive more and even more enjoyable. Be sure to come and find your own special “customization” that meets your desires at the Osaka Automesse.
The Wakakusa Yamayaki is an annual festival during which the grass on the hillside of Nara’s Mount Wakakusayama is set on fire. The mountain is located at the eastern end of Nara Park, and when it is set alight it can be seen throughout the city. The burning of the mountain itself is preceded by a fireworks display. The festival takes place every year on the 4th Saturday of January, but may be delayed to a later date in case of bad weather.
Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple and Kasuga Shrine are all involved with the ceremonies of the festival. The Wakakusa Yamayaki has been taking place for hundreds of years and its precise origins are unclear. One theory claims that the burning of the mountainside began during boundary conflicts between Nara’s great temples, while another claims the fires were used to drive away wild boars.
Japan Brewers Cup 2019 Venue: Osanbashi Hall Committee chair: Suzuki Shinya
Schedule: Thu, Jan. 24th, 10 am to 6 pm (Only Judging) Fri, Jan. 25th, 4 pm to 10 pm Sat, Jan. 26th, 11 am to 9 pm Sun, Jan. 27th, 11 am to 7 pm Entry: ¥500
35 Japanese craft breweries, 1 Taiwan brewery, 1 Czech brewery, 6 craft beer importers, 300 total varieties of beer, 5 food vendors
After entry, guests may purchase beer from ¥300 per cup directly from vendors.
This event has a dual purpose; it is a beer competition judged by professionals in the industry and also a beer festival for the general public. The beer competition is held in the morning.
The action shifts in the afternoon to the beer festival, where guests can drink from 250 varieties of craft beer. Most single cups are around ¥500 (prices vary for each vendor). During the festival, the results of the morning competition are announced and an awards ceremony is held for the winning breweries. Note: there were many entries this time from breweries that are not necessarily serving at the festival so the awards may not go to a participating brewery.
In addition to having a spirited competition for breweries, it is our goal to provide guests the opportunity to enjoy the very beers being judged. If you are interested in the competition, by all means please come. After watching the judges analyze the beers, enjoy some beer while waiting for the results.

Hirosaki Castle, a famous scenic spot for cherry blossoms, is a spectacular sight in winter. Founded in 1977, the Hirosaki Yuki-doro Festival is one of the 5 great snow festivals in the Michinoku area. Residents make the lanterns for the Yuki-doro Festival during the long, cold winters of the northland to make it even more enjoyable. At nights during the severe winter, the snow covered castle towers and old pine trees are lit up to produce a fantastic and poetic sense of nostalgia. Around the lotus pond that extends from the castle keep to Iwaki Mountain, miniature snow houses with candles inside are placed in a line to create a mystic atmosphere of snow and light. At the main venue around the fourth tower, many fun snow events take place, such as displays of snow statues in the shape of historical buildings, and a huge slide.
