CANCELLED Kisai Hydrangea Festival | KAZO
June 1 @ 09:30 - June 30 @ 15:00Free
The 16th annual Kisai Hydrangea Festival along The Way of the Wisteria and Hydrangea in Kazo was scheduled for the month of June 2020 with the main event on June 14th. However, the viewing period and the main event have been cancelled because of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Kisai Hydrangea Festival Highlights
The festival isn’t that well known and is quite small, you would only need about half an hour at the site. But the promenade is beautiful and stretches for a kilometre and a half.
The Kisai Hydrangea road is very photogenic and “instagrammable” with hydrangea lining the rice fields with the ruins of Kisai Shiroyama Park castle in the background. There are an estimated 10,000 hydrangea.
You can take a rickshaw ride at this event. You can also rent bikes. There are volunteer guides on hand. And there is usually a stamp rally.
You can get a bus from Tobu Isesaki Line Kazo station bound for the driver’s licensing center in Konosu. Alight at the Kisai Hydrange road bus stop. It takes about ten minutes on foot from the bus stop.
Also in Kazo in June – you can ride a boat at the Ukiya No Sato Iris festival…
Events by their very nature are tentative. Please do check with the official sources for any last minute changes due to weather or other mitigating factors, particularly with the current Coronavirus outbreak.
