The Taki no Tsubaki (camellias of the waterfall) tree, estimated to be 1000 years old, in Takino Tsubaki Park bears rich purplish-red flowers. Some 5000 azalea plants in Ungan Park bear beautiful flowers. Cherry blossoms in Nodagawa Shinsui Park settle on Nodagawa’s riverbed, coloring it pink. Spring is a time for the townspeople to enjoy participating in the annual festivals, Kayadani Matsuri, Iwataki Matsuri, and Migochi Hikiyama Matsuri (Intangible Folk Cultural Property designated by Kyoto Prefecture), during which presentations to show reverence for the deities are made, such as children’s Kabuki performances, Sasabayashi dances, and Kagura dances, as well as parades through the streets along with mikoshi portable shrines and yatai floats.

Another important element of the town of Yosano is that it has thrived up to the present day hand-in-hand with chirimen silk crêpe. During the periods from the Taisho to the early Showa, when Showa Modern, the contemporary popular culture was flourishing, the town was bustling with people involved in the chirimen business, and the old path in the Kaya district was aptly called “Chirimen Road.” Many structures, including merchant families' houses, hospitals and banks built at the time still remain to this day. Visitors to the town are encouraged to trek across Mt. Oheyama, a site where legends of the oni ogres live on, or go cycling on the road that puts into practical use the old Kaya railroad, appreciating the townscape and the great nature it is blessed with.
