Cancelled: The 39th Kasukabe Wisteria Festival
April 26 @ 10:30 - 16:00Free
The 39th Kasukabe Wisteria Festival (2020) has been cancelled.
Kasukabe is probably best known as being the home of the fictional anime character Crayon Shinchan. However, wisteria lovers will also know it to be the home of the famous wisteria of Ushijima and Toukaen.
The wisteria in Kasukabe Saitama typically bloom from mid April until about the 7th of May. On Wisteria street in Kasukabe they hold a wisteria festival every year. The festival is popular with locals and is family friendly. There will be no festival this year due to Coronavirus.
But the wisteria park in Ushijima has set the park opening dates as from Saturday April 18th until Wednesday May 6th. Please note there is a cover charge into this park of 1000 yen for adults and 500 yen for children. (The festival on Wisteria street is free).
Kasukabe Wisteria Festival Events
The festival line up includes live performances and a parade along 1.1 kilometers of Wisteria Street. The parade has a police band, baton twirlers, magic performances and dance.
There are other performances scheduled on the day such as kids dance performances, a cheer leading squad, taiko and Yosakoi. There is also a display of emergency vehicles on the day.
Seven minutes on foot from Tobu Line Kasukabe Station (also see grey box below for map, contact and other details).
