Tentative: Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri at Takao Sakura Park

April 3, 2021 @ 10:00 April 4, 2021 @ 15:00

The 2021 Kitamoto sakura Matsuri has not yet been confirmed. It hasn’t been cancelled either. However, in 2020 it did not go ahead on account of the Coronavirus and the State of Emergency.

Kitamoto Sakura Matsuri Takao Sakura Park

If the festival does go ahead it will most likely be on the first weekend of April. The Cherry Blossom Festival at Takao Sakura Park in Kitamoto is popular among locals during the cherry blossom season. There are about 200 cherry blossom trees of 30 different varieties.  Please note there is no playground equipment in this park. There are food stalls available at the cherry blossom festival and they have local gourmet as well as festival food. Moreover, there is normally live stage performances. They usually have a taiko performance. In 2019 they also had an “experience corner” for kids and a bingo competition too. It is usually held on both the Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm.

You can read more about the park in English here.

Takao Sakura Park access

It takes about 35 minutes to walk from JR Takasaki Line’s Kitamoto Station to the park. You can also get a bus from the station which takes about 10 minutes.

By car it is about 4 kilometers from the Okegawa-Kitamoto Interchange of the Ken-o expressway. There is parking for about 140 cars. There are two separate car parks. One is on the west end down by the Arakawa River. The other is on the east side.

The Kitamoto Cherry blossom festival incorporates three different cherry blossom festivals: this one, the one at the Kabazakura and the one at Kitamoto Children’s Park.
