Satte Daffodil Festival

January 5, 2019 @ 08:30 February 20, 2019 @ 17:00

Satte Daffodil Festival (also known as the Narcissus Festival) in Gongendo Park, Satte, Saitama.

Gongendo is a prefectural park in Satte, renowned for its seasonal flowers.

From the park’s official website

Gongendo Park in Satte City, Saitama Prefecture, is best known for its stunning cherry blossom and rapeseed scenery in Spring. It is also well known for its red spider lilies in the Autumn.  In more recent years the hydrangea are also enjoying acclaim, especially the Annabel variety which the park is renowned for.

In the past couple of years, the park has also tried to increase visitors during winter. In a bid to attract people in the colder months, they have been planting daffodil since 2005. There are now 500,000 daffodils in the park. And the daffodil festival is becoming better known in the greater Kanto area.

The 2019 Daffodil festival started on January 5th and will continue until February 17th. An estimated 115,000 people will come to see the daffodil in Satte over the course of the flower festival.  Please note the park maybe closed if there is bad weather such as snow. 

The park was only officially opened in 2011, but the area and some of the flora and fauna (including the cherry blossoms) have existed long before that. The park brought with it multipurpose athletic grounds and a playground.
