Hanno Spring Festival | HANNO

March 30 @ 00:00 April 7 @ 23:59

Takao Sakura Park Hanno spring festival Nagatoro cherry blossom festival

Hanno Spring Festival – Currently the 2019 Hanno Spring Festival is scheduled to occur between March 30th and April 7th. But you might remember last year the festival started a day earlier at the last minute.
Essentially the Hanno Spring festival is a cherry blossom festival. Last year the cherry blossoms were early in Hanno (and around the Kanto plain) and accordingly the spring festival was moved up.

The Hanno cherry blossom festival is conducted in two areas in Hanno: the Hanno Central Park “Hiroba” and the Hanno “Kawara” or river beach in English. You can see both on the map below.

This festival also has night light up of the sakura. The trees are decorated with lanterns for the occasion. The lights are on from 5 pm to 8 pm in the Central park area. There are food stalls on the 30th and 31st and again from April 1st to 7th. At the weekends during this period they will have campfires lit in certain places. Cherry blossoms with camp / bonfires is  something I personally have only ever seen in Hanno.
