Azalea Festival | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA
April 27 @ 10:00 - 14:00Free
The 7th annual Azalea Festival in Monomiyama in Higashimatsuyama will be held on Saturday April 27th from 10 am to 2 pm. The festival includes live dance and music performances in the center of dozens of beautiful azalea.
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.

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.
