Narcissus and Rapeseed festival at Yoshimi Athletic Park | Yoshimi
April 8 @ 09:30 - April 9 @ 16:00
Yoshimi Athletic Park is quite hard to find, but it is worth the effort for this annual free spring flower festival. You have to drive down onto the flood plains of the Arakawa River on grass “roads” and will eventually see staff directing you where to park.
We go to this rural festival annually as there is quite a lot for the kids to do. They can try various activities such as operating a shovel car, ride on a helicopter or take a short horse back ride. They can also enjoy a number of workshops and activities, or just enjoy the live performances and festival stalls. There is also a flea market so they usually have toy and antique stalls. There is usually a couple of bouncy castles too. Most years there is a woodcarving artist performing live. They have some super heroes walking around too. There are a few food and drink stalls and some tables laid out to eat at or you can set up your own picnic area.
Please see the grey box for more details (time, URL, map etc).
