Isanuma Park Cherry blossom festival

Isanuma Park Cherry Blossoms – Isanuma park in Kawagoe is a popular spot to enjoy Hanami for locals. There are cherry blossoms along the river at the playground as well as cherry blossoms lining the street that separates the lake from the park. The park usually has a cherry blossom festival too. However, it hasn’t been on during the pandemic. Hopefully, it will be back in 2023.

Isanuma Park Cherry Blossoms

The cherry blossoms in Isanuma Park are stunning due to their maturity. There are about 120 trees around the park and even more on the footpath by the lake. You are allowed eat and drink in the park, they even have a barbecue area. But the barbecue area is closed for the one day of their cherry blossom festival. But on that day, they have festival stalls where you can buy food.

We have enjoyed many a hanami (picnic under the cherry blossom) along the river under the beautiful blooms in this park. What’s great about this park is that it is quite small so you can see the playground from many of the hanami spots. The playground is very popular with children as it has quite a lot of climbing and some of the equipment is the type you don’t see in many other places.

End of March and the first week of April is usually a good time to see the cherry blossoms and enjoy hanami in this park in Kawagoe. They usually have a cherry blossom festival, but it was suspended indefinitely during the pandemic:

Cherry Blossom Festival

The cherry blossom festival at Isanuma Park is relatively small, but much loved. It is usually on for one day only, often the last Saturday of March. For that day, there are several festival stalls selling festival food. Information for the 2023 festival will be added here when / if it becomes available.
