Ranzan Autumn Leaves Festival **Cancelled**
November 23, 2019 @ 09:00 - November 24, 2019 @ 17:00Free
Ranzan Autumn leaves festival, walk and gourmet at Ranzan Gorge, also referred to as Ranzan Valley.
The 2019 Ranzan Autumn leaves festival, walk and gourmet events have been set for the November public holiday weekend: Saturday November 23rd and Sunday November 24th.
The 2019 event has been cancelled due to damage during typhoon Hagibis;
Until recent years the Ranzan Gorge was quite an off the tourist trail location within Saitama. However, it now enjoys great acclaim and people come from further afield to view the gorge during the fall season. The gorge is quite picturesque all year round and it is a popular spot during the summer months too, for river play and barbecues along Tsuki river. There is some great hiking in the area.
