CANCELLED Kitamoto Children’s Park Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri 2020

April 4, 2020 @ 10:00 - April 5, 2020 @ 15:00

Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri

Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri 2020 at the Kitamoto Children’s Park.

The Kitamoto Cherry Blossom Festival is usually held at three different locations; the Kitamoto Takao sakura park is the main festival area and there is also a festival at both the Kabazakura (a famous cherry blossom as it is the only one of its type in the whole world) and the Kitamoto Children’s Park.

The sakura at Kitamoto Children’s park are stunning. There are mature cherry blossoms beside around the park.  It is a great place for hanami with children. The park is always popular, but during the festival it is buzzing. During the festival they have special events on as well as festival stalls.

The 25th annual Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri – cherry blossom festival – which was scheduled for April 4th and 5th – has been cancelled due to COVID-19 as part of the efforts to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus.

While the event has been cancelled, the park is currently open (March 3rd) to the public. The neighboring Kitamoto Nature Observation park – which links to the children’s park – is also open to the public, however the facilities within both parks are closed to the public. The toilets in the children’s park are open to the public.
