CANCELLED Shiki Sakura Festa | SHIKI

March 28 @ 10:00 March 29 @ 15:00

Shiki Sakura festa

The third annual Shiki Sakura Festa has been cancelled due to concerns of Covid-19. It was scheduled for March 28th and 29th. Cancellation notice from the official Shiki City website

2019 Information

This is only the second annual Shiki Sakura Festa, but the cherry blossoms in the area have been celebrated for a long time. There are some really lovely cherry blossom spots in Shiki. Including at the Iroha Water Park where this festival takes place. It is along the Shingashi river.

The 2019 festival is on Saturday the 30th and Sunday the 31st of March. On Saturday the event space opens at 9.40 am and on Sunday at 10 am. On both days the festival is on from 10 am to 3 pm. It will not go ahead if it is raining.

On both days there is live entertainment such as music and dance stage performances. There is also a flea market. One of the highlights of this festival is a boat ride, always a popular attraction. However, the boat doesn’t really go under cherry blossoms. The most famous cherry blossom boat ride in Saitama is the one in Kawagoe, also on the Shingashi river. You can also ride a boat under cherry blossoms on Motoara river in Fukiage.

Shiki Sakura Festa access

The Iroha water park is located conveniently close to the Shiki City offices. You can take a bus to the Shiki city hall and walk a couple of minutes to the park.
