The Satte Higanbana (Red Spider Lily) Festival starts mid September in Gongendo Park in Satte.  The Higanbanas are quite famous there as are the cherry blossoms and rape flowers in Spring. There are over 3 MILLION red spider lilies in Gongendo Park, Satte.

You can picnic in the park. There are benches. And a little shop too. There is also a tourist information area. They have a playground in the park.
