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. The event is scheduled for Sunday the 22nd of April, however if it is raining that day the event will be postponed to April 29th.
