Aisai no Oka hill愛妻の丘
Aisai no Oka hill is a sacred place that made Tsumagoi Village world-famous as a "sacred place for devoted husbands". This is not a "seeing" tourist spot, but a "screaming" tourist spot that is rare in the world. Visitors shout at the magnificent Mt. Asama, saying "My wife, I love you", a word they can't usually say to their wives. Every year in September, the Shout Your Love to your wife in a Cabbage Patch event is held at this bustling holy ground for devoted husbands. Shy husbands, join this event and scream. There is also a huge stand on the hill, and if you scream, let's stand on it as a couple. Ring the bell, shout, hug. With this, their love is eternal. After shouting “I love you", the couples time slip back to their newly-wed days, rekindling their love. Aisai no Oka is located on the back (north side) of Mt. Asama, overlooking Lake Tashiro, and is a wide flat land surrounded by 360-degree mountains, so it has a wonderful view.
