Plum Blossom Season Omiya Dai Ni Park

February 20, 2021 @ 10:00 March 15, 2021 @ 17:00

omiya dai ni plum blossom festival

Omiya Plum Blossom season– Update February 26th. Sorry I am late updating – there’s just one of me, so its hard to keep each and every post and event up to date. It was decided in the end that the festival would not go ahead on account of the pandemic. However, the plum blossom grove is open to the public. Currently the tea house in the park is closed due to the State of Emergency. They have said they might extend the closure depending on the situation with the coronavirus outbreak.

There are approximately 500 plum blossom trees of 40 different varieties. It is the only large size plum grove in Saitama City. There are several other plum blossom groves in the prefecture though. The plum grove is on the North West of Daini park. But the park merges into Owada Park. In that sense it is in the middle of the parks! It isn’t a particularly large area.

Its much smaller than the other plum blossom groves that Saitama is famous for such as Ogose Bairin and Hodosan Bairin. However, there are plum blossoms in bloom throughout the park in different areas. Even by the playground there are a few plum blossom trees. In the grove you can see plum blossoms contrasted with pine trees, the featured photo at the top of this post.

Omiya Plum Blossom Festival

In a normal year there is a festival during the period that the plum blossoms bloom. The festival is usually held from about mid February to mid March in Omiya Dai Ni Park. This year there has been a food van selling Hong Kong style crepes on the weekends.

Shinrin Park is not as well known for plum blossoms, but the plum blossom grove there is very nice. The park itself has a huge amount of things for families to enjoy.
