Flowers and First Tea Festival | SAYAMA

April 29 @ 09:00 - 15:00

Sayama Flower and First Tea Festival – To celebrate the Shincha Harvest, literally “new tea” or as we might say in English “first tea” of the season, Sayama has a tea and flower festival every year during Golden week. The first tea festival is held annually on April 29th.

From the official site

Sayama is very famous for green tea, probably the most famous area in the Kanto region (area around Tokyo). The roots of Sayama green tea are actually in Kawagoe. You can read more about that connection and green tea products in Kawagoe here (click highlighted text).  {External Site}

At the first tea festival they not only sell and sample green tea, but they also give interested parties the very rare chance to pick tea. Other events have also been organised for the day including music performances such as traditional taiko drums. There are food stalls and a popular lottery draw. They will be giving out flowers at two different times in the day too, something that is also very rare in Japan.

Other family attractions in the Sayama area:

Near the first tea festival site is Inariyama Park with the Sayama Municipal museum on one end of the park. That museum currently has an excellent 3D Trick Art exhibition suited to families:

One of Saitama’s best family parks, Chikozan Park, is also in Sayama. It has something for everyone with flora and fauna, a children’s zoo, fishing, athletic playground, general playground and scenic walks. Nearby is the Saiboku resort, which is actually in Hidaka, but only a three minute drive from Chikozan Park.  On a rainy day the Sayama Cats Eye Play center is a lot of fun for kids, even if the building leaves a lot to be desired!
