Cosmos Festival | KONOSU

October 27 @ 09:00 - October 28 @ 16:00

Cosmos Festival

Cosmos Festival in Konosu

Cosmos Festival Konosu

Last year due to a typhoon the event was cancelled last minute, along with my plans to finally see the Cosmos from atop Japan’s longest water pipe bridge. I have seen the cosmos from the fields, but was looking forward to the bird’s eye view. Hopefully, this year I can cross that off my bucket list.

Each year to mark the blooming of 12,000,000 cosmos in the Arawaka riverbed area of Konosu City there is a 2 day festival near the flower fields.  It is during this period that you are allowed walk on the water pipe bridge (weather permitting) between the hours of 9.30 am and 3 pm. This is a free event.  The festival includes stage events, a farmers market, festival stalls and a flea market.
