Kawajima Rose Festival – Heisei No Mori Park in Kawajima Town is home to the longest rose tunnel in Japan. It isn’t a huge park, but it is very nice for children. There is a really fun playground and in the summer there is a nice wading river.

The rose festival is quite small with a local feel. But there are some draws of this no fuss festival. For example, they usually have free food for a couple of hours each day! And of course, there are the beautiful roses. They light them up at night during the period of the festival. Also, the wading river is usually available for use when the festival is on.

The spring festival falls during the rose festival period

This year the rose festival will be on from Saturday May 11th until Sunday May 19th. During that period there is a larger spring festival – on Sunday May 12th. This is the 1st year that they are calling it a “spring festival” and having it on during the rose festival. The festival used to be called a “children’s day festival” and used to fall on children’s day, May 5th, each year. Basically they have just moved the date and changed the name. It is a particularly kid friendly festival with lots of hands on experiences and the majority of them are free for kids to participate in.

If you are coming by car, you can easily combine a visit to see the famed poppies of Konosu in Japan’s largest poppy fields. It only takes us 17 minutes by car from Kawajima Rose Festival to Happy Poppy Square, one of the two main poppy fields of the Konosu Poppy Festival.
