Azalea Monomiyama Azalea festival

The 8th annual Azalea Festival in Monomiyama in Higashimatsuyama will not go ahead in 2020 due to the coronavirus. Official notification on the Higashimatsuyama city website

The festival usually includes live dance and music performances in the center of thousands of beautiful azalea. There are 40,000 azalea in the park.

It is a small local festival, but the park is beautiful particularly in Autumn and at this time of year when the azalea are in bloom. And while both the festival and the park are small, they are close to other attractions for a day out in Higashimatsuyama.

The park is located right beside the Saitama Peace Museum on one side and Shoboji on the other. It is also close to the excellent Saitama Children’s Zoo, one of the best zoos in the Kanto plain.

Access Monomiyama Park

By public transport you can get a bus from Takasaka Station on the Tobu Tojo Line. Take a bus for Daito Bunka University and alight at the university and walk to the park. It is a ten minute walk uphill, but double that if you are pushing a buggy or have children walking with you. 

By car: the park is on the same road that the main entrance to the zoo is on, route 212. You pass the zoo and Daito Bunka University if you are coming from the direction of downtown Higashimatsuyama going toward Hatoyama. By highway you can use either the Higashimatsuyama or Sakado Nishi Smart Interchange exits on the Kanetsu expressway. Please note that you must have an ETC card to use the latter, Sakado Nishi Smart Interchange, exit.
