Sakurasou Japanese primrose festivals | SAITAMA CITY
April 14 @ 10:00 - April 15 @ 15:30
During mid April the city of Saitama host a number of Japanese primrose “Sakurasou” festivals. Sakurasou or Sakuraso is written in Japanese with the kanji for cherry blossoms and for grass i.e. cherry blossom grass. However, Japanese primrose is the name used in English for this flower. The flower doesn’t look that much like cherry blossoms nor does the shibazakura, or moss phlox as its called in English, but both are classified as coming under the “sakura” umbrella.
On April 14th and 15th there will be a festival at Saitama’s city hall between 9 am and 4 pm.
On April 15th Sakuraso Park in Sakura ward of Saitama city will have their annual Japanese primrose festival. It is very child friendly with a character show with local super heroes performing.
